    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    A shame. It would've been nice for him to retire of his own accord and not due to his legs giving out like that in front of a crowd. His expression was heartbreaking. A bad end to a great career, but hopefully the injury can be treated, and he can live a comfortable post-retirement life. Sad to see him go, but man, what a legend.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Nagoya 2019

    Considering all the injuries and ailments involved in sumo, "just tired" almost sounds like a good thing.

    He could be photoshopped into so many fun places with that pose.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    I don't have the source on me, but hasn't Yoshikaze said before that a win for Tomokaze is more important to him than a win for himself?

    Aminishiki. That man never quits. I somehow wouldn't be surprised if he's still active this time next year, at the rate he's going.

    I hope the Reiwa era brings more players to this game. It's been a lot of fun. Good luck everyone!

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Aoiyama is in the yusho race again, this time with the top guys present and (somewhat) in good form. Would be quite the upset to see him shove out Ichinojo today and have that second place spot all to himself going into the final days.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    With the makuuchi yusho race being anyone's game, I'm finding that threeway juryo yusho race a bit more interesting. Three wiry guys leading with 1 loss, and Enho's actually among them. That kid can really adapt, which is something not many rikishi are good at. Good to see Akatsu as the guest on Abema today as well! I've seen him on quite a few sumo programs, but I don't really know what he's about. If anyone could PM me more info on him, I'd much appreciate it.

    Loving the new format! It's much easier to decide on picks this way. Main Team: Mitakeumi Hokutofuji Shohozan Takarafuji Yutakayama Daishomaru Daiamami Akiseyama Wakatakakage Chiyonoumi Churanoumi Nishikifuji Ichiyamamoto Midorifuji Ura Alternates: Yago Midorifuji Tiebreakers: Enho Homarefuji
