    Grand Sumo Preview (NHK World)

    Those Musashimaru's sections, are they part of a larger interview with him that is going to be shown at a later stage or was that it?

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Aminishiki is the closest i can get to a "bingo" with only 4 ranks missing. Others in the top 10 basho appearences have more missing. Maybe someone with less basho is more accurate and has a full bingo.

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Sorry if this looks more as a trivia question than belonging on this tread, but is there a record for the rikishi that has had more ranks in makuushi? i.e. a rikishi that has been M1E, M1W, M2E, M2W, etc

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    Oh, this punishment now becomes a very mean thing to do if he just had a baby. Unless he doesn't care much about the child... That also means he was going out all these times with a heavy pregnant wife at home. That decreases even more my consideration for him.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Well, were people in Japan also criticizing him for the henka or was it just on this forum? And btw, there was nothing wrong with what he did and shouldn't be criticized. Not his fault Koto lost 6 times...

    Kadoban help

    What was the bet?

    Kadoban help

    Tochinoshin is probably the worst percentage in recent times. 3 kadoban in 7 at the rank. Miyabiyama a close second with 3 in 8.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    What was wrong with Kotoshogiku today? Was he injured and cannot squat properly? If that was a tactic, then it was a stupid one as his sumo os based in having a powerfull tachiai.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Ironically it was because of Isegahama stable, coaches, etc that he got all those injuries and end up in the 5th division. As it was extensively discussed at the time, intead of treating correctly the first injury when he got it, he was fighting injured for a year, before starting a proper treatment. Only Isegahama to blame there. And thus we lost what would be today the dominant yokozuna and the worthy succession to Hakuho...

    Games Bugs

    I'm also missing on the Paper Oyakata game :( I do my games from the Super Banzuke web in the order they appear and the PO comes just after the SB, so something might have gone wrong with the japanese site at that time.

    Yes, that was the list i've checked after i couldn't find in the daily results. I did check that too after i submited my entries and it was there, so that's why i don't understand why it is not there now. I do agree with you that there should be a confirmation email. It has been usefull to me once in a different game. Anyway, what i remember from my picks i wasn't doing great afterall, so no big loss if my entry can't be found.

    I can't see myself in the Sumo Bingo game. I'm preety sure i've sent my entry on Sunday between 5am - 7am (Japan time). Is it possible to see if there is some kind of error? Thanks

    July basho?

    Any news on any kyujo sekitori (apart from retirement)?

    Nakagawa-beya closed down - next scandal

    What was the process to decide who goes to which heya? Would find strange if they have asked rikishi and staff to decide, so was it NSK that said you go here and you go there or was the stablemasters that come in and pick the ones they wanted?

    Rikishi Families In Attendance?

    Its quite common for the famillies of the rikishi to be in the audience on Day 15 when he has won the yusho or is still in the race. Also when going for a promotion as Joann mentioned above. During the TV broadcast they are shown on the build up for the fight and on replay.

    Tomokaze and Yago

    Is this the reason he was been crap since July last year or a recent injury?

    Foreigner with Japanese shusshin

    It's actually "Velez-san". Spanish speakers have this annoying thing (trying to be polite here) of using their first surname as their main surname, while most of the world (not aware of exeptions, but might be there), uses whatever is the last surname as their main surname. A normal full name is made of 3 to 6 names, so one has to guess whatever is the first surname.

    When Is A Rikishi’s Prime?

    Phisical prime in male athelets is normally 26 to 31 years old. The fact that Hakuho is still the top dog in 2020 doesn't mean he is still in his prime. Believe 2010 Hakuho would win 9 out of 10 against 2020 Hakuho. The same with Kyokutenho. He won the yusho at 37, but he was physically superior at age 30

    Consecutive yusho in diffeent divisions

    He is a ms19, so he won't be in juryu in september. Unless something weird like a bunch of guys reteiring happens.

    Sumo goods

    You can buy them on ebay. Currently there is one seller selling them. The small for 12:00$ and the big for 16:00$. There is another one selling the big one for 59.99$. From my experience buying stamps on ebay, you always need to know the real price of the stamps you are buying or might get a rip off. Also, you should check if the Japan Post is selling them and ship wherever you live. I've never checked the japanese one, but some of the european do send worldwide and you pay retail price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ja1405-Japan-2020-tradition-and-culture-No-3-sumo-63y-MNH/283874268130?hash=item42183993e2:g:93sAAOSwSWxeuKZT

    Corona and sumo

    And they are doing very well, altough I don't think denial is the correct word. What would be the point of cancelling an event that will happen in 2 months and that they are not selling any tickets (i.e. they can cancel 1 day before it starts if they want)? Would that make people more happy or decrease the number of deaths and infected? No. So what is there to complain about not cancelling it today?
