    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    "Nothing last forever...even cold november rain..." I hope he gets good, but i dont really expect him at this moment and age to come back 100 or even 90% (Which is more than enough for him to keep winning half of the bashos every year)

    Terunofuji's health problems

    Its really sad to see, he should definetly retire and who knows, he might even have a future as an actor, big exotic guy, he needs to get in shape slowly but surely, however, the competitive world of sumo is like a piranha pool and he has no place there at all with his injuries any longer. Sad to see indeed, he represented pure strenght on the dohyo...

    Kakuryuu- what next?

    I tend to believe that Kakuryu feels a bit drowned in the shoes of a yokozuna...

    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.

    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.

    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..

    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

    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. would show how biased the Kyokai might have been with Kiseno.
