    Hatsu 2023 discussion (results)

    Azumaryu is finally kachikoshi 10 years after his Makuuchi debut.

    Transgender in sumo

    The recent hype about transgender/non-binary people in sports makes me wonder about what happens if any NSK member whose responsibilities include dohyo entrance (rikishi, oyakata, gyoji, etc) actually comes out as transgender/non-binary.

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    No mahjong or weed involved? Not even worth Shibatayama's time.

    Banzuke for Natsu(?) 2020

    Great to see Terunofuji back! 3 Makuuchi promotions from Sadogatake - I wonder if this is a record for a single sumo-beya.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Another Hatsu basho, another hatsu yusho. Kotoshogiku in 2016, Kisenosato in 2017, Tochinoshin in 2018, Tamawashi in 2019, now Tokushoryu.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    What was Kakuryu thinking there, going in low? Tomokaze never let him anywhere near his mawashi. Mitakeumi kachikoshi.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    And there goes the last of the Mohicans. Good timing as well, 6 years to learn how to run a heya until Isegahama-oyakata retires.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Mitakeumi stays in sanyaku for the 14th straight tournament. And Kakuryu has bottled it.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Just a matter of fact, Fujinoteru (72 kg) beat Wakamatsunaga (117 kg) by TSUKAMINAGE today.

    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?

    Ramos foul on Salah - monoii

    Or maybe sakatottari.

    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?

    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.

    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.
