    All I see is the shadow of Asanoyama falling.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Yeah, as tempting as it is to start with the conspiracy theories, I really do think it's a bad call made by an inadequate judging system. If Minato oyakata was convinced he saw Tochinoshin's foot go out, and no one was in a position to contradict him (although surely the gyoji had a clear view as well), then that's the decision they were going to go with. It's silly that all these shimpan were involved in the discussion when they had no idea what the situation was, and silly that the people who had access to the video replay were allowed to just throw up their hands and say they weren't sure. The other shimpan should have either pressed for more details (like asking the video booth guys 'did you see sand fly up with Tochinoshin's foot?') or been allowed to see replays for themselves.

    Ah, I see what you mean. And I totally agree, best comparison is in the reactions of the competitors. If a call like that had happened in football or tennis or something, they would have argued or complained, but even with as much on the line as he had, Tochinoshin knew there was nothing he could do but bow his head and walk to the back. For us fans, though, the emotion of watching what seems to be a clear cut travesty of a call is just as painful as it would be in other sports, especially given how people have been rooting for Tochinoshin to get back to ozeki.

    You're more entertaining than the commentators, though (well maybe except when Murray and John are on).

    Really? I don't think people being upset over bad referee calls is unusual in other sports.

    Would you still say that based on the picture above showing the lack of a sand mark after Tochinoshin's foot moves but before Asanoyama lands? Because that seems pretty conclusive to me.

    Heya Boss

    Ever wanted to be in charge of your own sumo stable? In Heya Boss, you can. Heya Boss lets you have your own group of rikishi and challenges you to guide them to the top of professional sumo. Signups In order to join Heya Boss, just tell me what your heya/oyakata name will be (if this is the same as your board name, it will probably make things easier, but this is not required). Once enough heya have been established, I will generate the rikishi that will start in our sumo world and hold a draft in order to determine who goes to which stable. Heya Boss basho will be held between the real life basho, so the first Heya Boss basho will be the Natsu basho in June. This is to ensure that Heya Boss does not conflict with most sumo games that are played during the real life basho. Most of the actual gameplay will be automated outside some simple daily decisions that need to be made during the basho. The spoiler tag below contains the game rules which should hopefully explain everything about how the game actually works. Any other questions about the game, let me know - I'll add it to the overall rules if it turns out I've missed something. Otherwise, hoping you're interested in playing

    Won't be the same without you (although I'm sure we'll get by). I've been catching up on everything since 2012 on your channel. Enjoy Tokyo :)

    GTB Natsu May 2019-invitation and final results

    I did too, though I suspect that was picking with my heart rather than my brain. Probably did terribly again this time but in my defence this game is haaaaaard.

    Wow. Dude was positively svelte back then.

    Hakuho Injures Arm Haru Basho 2019

    I wonder if he's looking ahead to retirement, which has to come next year if not sooner, and thinking he wants to compete as much as possible while he still can rather than sit out a bunch of what will likely be his last active year. I hope not, though. I would much rather see him at 100% condition than in the kind of condition we saw Kisenosato in at the end of his career.
