  1. Banzuke for Nagoya 2018

    Kise-beya though... 7 sekitori, and none of them in Makuuchi. Is this the record for most sekitori from the same heya?
  2. Ramos foul on Salah - monoii

    Or maybe sakatottari.
  3. Ramos foul on Salah - monoii

    Maybe not all of us have seen the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, but certainly all of us heard about a controversial episode between Sergio Ramos, the captain of Real Madrid, and Mo Salah of Liverpool. This is the episode. Let's look at this controversy from the sumo perspective. Imagine that you are the shinpan, and this is what happened on the dohyo. What would be your decision on this bout? What kimarite would you call? And who actually won the bout?
  4. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    In a departure from the yusho topic... Sazanami (Sd43w) has beaten Toryu (Sd48w) by gasshohineri today, first appearance of this extremely rare kimarite in almost 10 years.
  5. What other sports do you watch?

    Snooker, darts and F1. Not a big fan of soccer football anymore but still watch it either when Swansea City or our national team plays. Soccer football these days is full of yaocho.
  6. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    Oh, I completely forgot about the guy. Then, it's Kaisei (60%), Endo (20%), Tamawashi (19,9%), Abi (0,1%) for the second K spot.
  7. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    Mitakeumi's sanyaku position is 90% safe. The last time a non-haridashi sekiwake went 7-8 and was demoted to hiramaku happened after Hatsu 1992, when both Takatoriki and Kotonishiki were demoted to give way to Akebono and Takahanada. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&form1_rank=S&form1_wins=7&form1_losses=8&offset=50 query, http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Banzuke.aspx?b=199201 banzuke for Hatsu 1992. My guess for Natsu 2018 sanyaku: Tochinoshin (100%), Ichinojo (90%)/Kaisei (10%) S Mitakeumi (90%)/Ichinojo (10%), Kaisei (60%)/Endo (39,9%)/Abi (0,1%) K
  8. Desperately needing a name change.....

    Also, every man in Turkey and some in Azerbaijan are great fans of Abi. They used his shikona even before he was born. The Azerbaijani singer Uzeyir Mehdizade even has a song dedicated to Abi!
  9. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    Is it possible for Ikioi, Takekaze and Sokokurai to be demoted if they lose tomorrow?
  10. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    So, Kakuryu has (almost) bottled it. Seems to have lost his clue against Endo. Takayasu is the dark horse in this race. That's funny. Mitakeumi nowhere to be seen. I wonder if he even gets his KK eventually, or goes on to completely f it up to become first rikishi in a long time to end up going MK from 7-0 up. Tochinoshin - Sekiwake next basho. But Ichinojo tomorrow...
  11. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    With Harumafuji out for good, Hakuho kyujo and Kise not up to scratch, the ball is in Kakuryu's court. If he fails now, he better retire.
  12. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    The Japanese sure know how to have fun. What next? Takanohana-Isegahama drunk brawl? Hakuho kicked out for being caught having sex with a sheep on the dohyo?
  13. Banzuke for Hatsu 2018

    So, Daiamami is the lucky loser, 6-9 at M14 is normally a demotable record but, in these circumstances, he gets one last chance at M17.
  14. Ozekis and Yokozunas for January 2019

  15. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    There is an old saying in Russian pyramid billiards. It says, seven ain't eight. Onosho is a brilliant example of that. Sorry for another billiards reference. Aminishiki... Legend. Nothing else needs to be said.
