  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    Is it possible for Ikioi, Takekaze and Sokokurai to be demoted if they lose tomorrow?
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.

  10. 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.
  11. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Ronnie might not be the greatest snooker player that ever lived in terms of ranking titles - he's six short of Hendry's 36 - but he can be compared to Hakuho in the way that most people started watching their respective sports because of them and associated their respective sports with their names. I also see lots of people including myself comparing sumo to cue sports rather than other martial arts. Maybe it is because of sumo involving far more thought process than other martial arts that puts it on par with billiards.
  12. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    #Haku40 has happened, as I said before. The hashtag can be launched.
  13. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Should we start a #Haku40 hashtag already?
  14. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Kisenosato looks like post-injury Terunofuji. No power at all, no technique, he relies on sheer luck now.
  15. Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2017

    Kakuryu makekoshi and intai. Terunofuji 13-2 yusho in ketten-sei against Aminishiki. Aoiyama beats Ura by izori.
