    All the more impressive that Kakuryu was able to achieve the rank of Yokozuna despite belonging to such a small, indifferently run Heya.

    Why does Izutsu Stable only have three active wrestlers despite having Kakuryu in the house? I would think that a stable with a Yokozuna present would be an appealing one to join?

    In the broadcast, Mainoumi commented that had it been Enho who performed the same henka, the crowd would have likely gone wild.

    After defeating Hakuho yesterday, I was surprised when Kotoshogiku was not interviewed despite there being about seven minutes left in the NHK broadcast. A wrestler scoring a kinboshi would typically be interviewed in the same situation. I wonder if this is because he is a former Ozeki, and so was not interviewed out of respect for his former status?

    His bows are pretty nice and deep too.

    Sad to see his illustrious run atop the dohyo come to an end. On the plus side, I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing & hearing from him in the broadcast announcer's seat.

    That in itself should make for a spirited basho.

    Midorifuji, all 100 kilos of him, is now 4-0 at Ms11. A couple more wins and he could be well positioned for a Juryo promotion by the end of this year.

    I'm not interested in nit-picking this any longer. Feel free to agree or disagree. I honestly don't care that much either way. It was just a live commentary as a sumo fan reacting to the moment in this, the Nagoya Basho 2019 discussion thread. Kimura Konosuke is clearly a polarizing gyoji with supporters and detractors. I'll leave it at that.

    And what was the total time within all three of these instructions took place? There was nothing unusual about the time the two rikishi were taking to settle in to their tachi-ai compared to other bouts.

    What happened yesterday was Konosuke yelling at them, too loudly, three times while they were in the process of settling into a pre-tachiai hands down at a similar pace as most bouts, before they stood up the first time. And that is the norm for him.

    Yesterday he went too far, and even he realized it. He toned it down considerably following the matta, and kept the tone down for the following match. And yes, of course this is all trivial and none of it matters one iota in the great scheme of things, but it is after all a sumo forum, and this is the kind of stuff that we discuss just for the hell of it

    Kimura Konosuke

    Where is the option for: "He is the blundering, obnoxious Onomatsu of gyoji"?
