    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    He did his brand of sumo AND SOMEHOW WON AGAINST HAKUHO!
  2. Fukuyamada

    Ounomatsu Oyakata kyujo for Nagoya

    I hope whoever steps in to his role does a better job

    He earned the victory with a yorikiri against Goeido, so the change in opinion is understandable. There's always the possibility of a surprise tournament victor in this 15 bout tournament format. I agree that Asanoyama did enough to win the whole thing, but honestly, there was a bit of good fortune involved too, I'd admit.

    Asanoyama yusho!

    I'm under the assumption that once the head judge announces the result, there's nobody who can reverse the result (monoii is final verdict).

    The judges are seated and see the clay at an angle that is closer to eye level than the cameras. If one judge firmly rules that the call should be overturned, and the people watching the video replay can't or don't successfully intervene before the head judge decides to accounce the result, the result is probably not going to be gunbai-dori.

    Are they seeing something we can't see?
  8. Knee injuries really shouldn't be disregarded or brushed off so easily.

    It will be interesting to see how Takakeisho will fare in the remaining 8 days after re-entering. It seems as if he's going to attempt to secure a KK, despite the injury.

    Takakeisho injury update

    It seems like a wise and sensible decision to withdraw and recover. Hope he takes as much time off as necessary and doesn't rush it.

    Goueidou fighting well in practice bouts? I think we should all anticipate another excellent result from him at the upcoming tournament.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Regarding the Takakeisho promotion, I agree with Morty. I think it was unfortunate for him to miss out last time. It'll be unfortunate if 33 wins isn't enough the second time as well. Again, it's entirely subjective and open to bias. Shouldn't worry too much about it. It could be politics or personal dislike. But they decided to cite the loss against Goeido as one of the reasons why they decided against it. So I just guessed that the problem might be a result of conservative mindset and the judges erring towards caution, in case it backfires and their judgement or reputation is called into question.

    Takakeisho pushed forwards with both arms and ichinojo calmly slapped him down.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    No, of course not! I just think the most likely outcome is the obvious one.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He's trailing Hakuho by a win. Hakuho rarely slips up from 13-0.
