    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    The favor of depriving him of the opportunity to earn kinboshi? I hear he needs the money. I don't have any insight into the committee's (many disparate) motivations, but "perhaps a meeting with Hakuho would be too emotionally charged, so long as a civil suit against his former colleague remains ongoing," seems a more reasonable and less punative line of thought than "to hell with Hanada and all his deshi". You know... if we were to blindly speculate about such things.

    Hmm... Takanohana resigned and closed up the heya a month or so ago (?), during which time the lawsuit persisted. The Kyushu banzuke was released yesterday, in which Takanoiwa was quite obviously and drastically under-promoted. Lawsuit withdrawn. The system works!?

    Oh, yes: without the indignity of reaching around to adjust the offending portion - sounds like a perfectly awkward Kise-solution. It's called hinkaku, I hear.

    You know he gotta work dat, twerk dat. Isn't it a bit more of a half Running Man, though? Actually: a Cabbage Patch might make some therapeutic sense. Perhaps he's just doing it wrong.

    Most importantly: a stunning green macaron! Stellar basho.

    ...and you complain about other posters’ “tone”s? Brilliant. Otherwise: let’s all define Sumo.

    What’s a matta you? You gotta no respect. ...et cetera. Otherwise, my day 5 Mitakeumi concerns and hopes have been confirmed and/or enjinxed. Also: Tochinoshin wants to remind you all that your puny Morozashi are futile.

    I have a similarly-derived respect for Hattorizakura.

    Well... the past five days of undefeated Yokozuna performances have been refreshing and honestly a quite a bit exciting, but it's hard to see this run progressing much further. Kisenosato's victories have all been hard-fought nail-biters, and I figure Hakuho caught a bit of luck in not getting Okuridashi'd while presenting his backside to a flat-footed Takakeisho. It has been noted here that we have not seen 3 undefeated Yokozuna through day 4 (or more) since Haru, 1989 (Hokutoumi, Onokuni, Chiyonofuji) - that collective winning record will hold through day 11. Beyond that, Futabayama, Terukuni, and Haguroyama each held spotless records through 12 days of Hatsu, 1943. How far do you think this current streak will run? Anyhow (and trivia aside)... I'm still waiting for Mitakeumi to mentally fall apart somewhere around day 8, but am hopeful he has left that habit behind him. Also: dark horse Hokutofuji, anyone?

    Cupping isn’t a “treatment” for back pain, location notwithstanding.
