  1. Hi, cant seem to remember that but thank you? but definetly some guys like Konishiki went way beyond that limit haha
  2. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Late, but better late than never, i guess...
  3. Kakuryuu- what next?

    I tend to believe that Kakuryu feels a bit drowned in the shoes of a yokozuna...
  4. Kakuryuu- what next?

    The mongolian yokozuna, in general, dont have the type of "humbleness" that some japanese great had...No, i dont picture Hakuho as an oyakata.
  5. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    I really enjoyed the reading, very elaborated, too, thanks! And you are right, when Buster Douglas knocked Mike Tyson out, everybody was a Buster Douglas fan from the get go, before that, everyone thought he was "another chubby heavyweight who is getting knocked out inside 2 rounds". The neutral fan is the embodiment of the modern world hypocrisy.

    Kisenosato s career is not over yet, so we cant really talk. He won his yokozuna debut while having a career ending injury, and he still tries to get back to his former self. I Still believe that, with proper rest, he can, maybe, do it again. And he is, in my opinion, far bettter wrestler than Onokuni.
  7. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    I never understood the "hate" towards Goeido, for example. Yes, he is not looking like he will be a yokozuna someday, but i just cant stop hearing people, many on this forum also, saying how he is a shame as an ozeki. Just a thought that escaped my mind for some reason..
  8. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    I remember commentator Hiro Morita saying, a couple bashos ago, that he was "being warned" by the "Sumo Association" about "having to improve" and i remember that it was then when i really understood that he was in a very delicate situation, being a yokozuna, injured and all of that. But hey, the pressure has worked just fine i guess, (That and the healing, of course) !!!

    Really? 12-3/ Yusho/ 13-2 is promotion yes or yes
  10. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    The traditional standard has not been used in any recent yokozuna, besides, check out Kisenosato promotion...i believe that a 12-3, a yusho, and a 12-3/13-2 in the next tournament means promotion. Or...it would show how biased the Kyokai might have been with Kiseno.
  11. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    a yusho win in may and at least 12 wins later in July would make it, but nothing below that i am afraid, or we might have an Onokuni case.
  12. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Well, about ten, hehe, but seriously, i saw Kakuryu cool, calm and collected, never in real, real trouble Ichinojou has rarely beaten him tbh, and half of his two wins have come with blatant henka
  13. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Notoriously bad? He predicted the Goeido yusho and the Kisenosato promotion to yokozuna!
  14. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    "He had Kakuryu"? i dont know what bout you were watching, friend
  15. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I really, really hope Kakuryu can pull this off Being a Giku fan has been something painful lately, specially this basho, but if kakuryu wins, at least thats some good news...
