    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    So, will this committee that likes to repremand Hakuho all the time for silly reasons do something about Takakeisho spoiling the yusho race? What was the point of him coming back injured and be put on the schedulle to then drop the next day when he is due to fight one of yusho contenders giving him a freebie?

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    There was one rikishi that show up there 4 years ago that should be the top dog by now - Terunofuji. When he was promoted to Ozeki he was already at the same level as Kak, Har and Kise. If it wasn't for the events we know, with the experience accumulated by now, he should have already replaced Hakuho as the dominant Yok. Who knows if there isn't another Dai-Yok already in the lower divisions under the radar and ready to explode in a couple of years? Remember Hakuho wasn't that great comming up the ranks and even had losing records in the lower divisions.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Tochinoshin is definitly not one of my favourite wrestlers, but have to admit he deserves this Yusho and get back to Ozeki. Let's see what he does in the second week, but apart from Kakuryu that has been so so, all the ones above him are having crap performances.

    Takakeisho injury update

    Go say that to Isegahama who ruined Terunofuji's carreer...

    May Banzuke

    Believe today is an Holiday (Showa Day), according with the Internet. Next few days are also Holidays, but due to the new Emperor thing. Today, it seems to be an holiday every year.

    New recruits for Natsu 2019

    Isn't this considered Child Labor? A referee is, at least in my opinion, a different category of a wrestler or other activities that a child can take that are paid (for instance a Movie Actor).

    Day 15 pics overview Haru 2019

    Showing the tongue to his parents? Should have been slapped straightaway! And who the hell gives a handshake to his own mother? Seems like if he is greeting someone he has just met.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Based on these 2 days i would put my money on Goeido for the Yusho. Although Takayasu and Takakeisho are also looking good. Even Mita. Hakuho we never know. He might keep fighting like this and still get a 15-0... Tochinoshin is done as an Ozeki. As for Tamawashi, does he really want to be an Ozeki? At his age does he want to go through all the trouble and stress of being an ozeki? He has accomplished what he wanted in January and can now retire as a happy man.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    Agree. It is starting to look like one of those rikishi that stays in upper maegashira for years doing 9-6, 6-9 and doesn't really go anywhere.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    He does beat at least one Ozeki in every basho, so he might be taking something from it after all.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    Depends a bit of your Culture. As a South European I see no issue in using someone else's body to help exercising. Even in schools it is common to carry someone else as part of a gym class. Regarding the exercise itself, my question is more if it is actually beneficial what he is doing as the weight distribution is not 50 - 50. Unless what he was aiming to was to put more pressure in one side of his body.

    Some new rules..

    Not joking, but are they also requested to cut pubic hair as a rule? Understand that asian people have less body hair (legs, chest, etc) than europeans or americans, but those mawashis don't cover much and you can't see any hair.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    They need to change the question for all Y/O from is he planning to enter to is he planning to finish the basho.

    February special one day tournaments

    @Mitakeumi, you need to listen to Tochinoshin! He is doing exactly the same mistakes as Terunofuji did. Don't want to be wrong, but believe he also participate on this Fuji basho while injured.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2019

    He has been in upper maegashira for a while and always manages to beat at least one ozeki every time (ok, it's mostly Tochinoshin and he has never performed at ozeki level, since in the rank). He just needs to figure out how not to lose to lower ranks so often and then he can start putting double digits.
