    Chiyotenzan-curtain?

    I'm very disappointed! He was the very first sekitori I saw in the flesh (august 2003).

    Hakuho - Another opening day loss ?

    I think that Dejima will surprise us.
  3. We must remember something : the number of ozeki in activity before a new promotion. For example, now, there are four ozeki. So, standards would be higher for Ama's promotion (for example). If there would be only one or two ozeki, standards would be less draconian, hard. In Kirishima's autobiography, he explains it. For Hasegawa's non-promotion, I suppose that his results were deemed as substandard. At this time, they were four ozeki : Kotozakura (same Hasegawa's heya), Maenoyama, Kiyokuni and Daikirin, plus one yokozuna : Kitanofuji.

    Yushos

    Not original : 5+1+0 For yokozuna yusho, I think that Hakuho will win three and two for Asashoryu. Ozeki yusho for Kotooshu.

    Yokozuna and Ozeki

    No surprise in 2008 : Kaio intai and no yokozuna or ozeki promotion/demotion.

    How will Asashoryu finish in Hatsu?

    14-1 and yusho. I think that Asashoryu will succeed a great basho.

    Best Yokozuna rivalry post WWII

    You forgot Tamanoumi-Kitanofuji. One of the most exciting. Anyway, my favourite one is Takanosato VS Chiyonofuji.

    Ichihara - In makuuchi for Hatsu '08 or not ?

    No, I don't think so.

    Ichinoya intai

    Ichinoya started his sumo career during an incredible hon-basho. Kyushu basho 1983 (makuuchi division) was a very exciting with a great final battle between Takanosato and Chiyonofuji. Chiyo-Taka period was brief but incredibly interesting. Ah... what a great times!

    Kotooshu - Sekiwake in March 08?

    I agree with you. I can't imagine that Kotooshu will not able to reach kachi-koshi in january.

    Takanowaka intai

    Moto-sekiwake Takanowaka, 31 years old, announced his retirement. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/sumo/news/20070922ie43.htm

    Did they ruin their chance?

    I agree with Asashosakari! I think that Homasho (komusubi) and Ama (sekiwake) will be promoted.
