    Preparations of the masses- Natsu 2023

    How Mitakeumi looking? Has he healed up?

    Sounds crazy but I'd love to see a Kotoeko yusho. Should I just go ahead and move this to the ridiculous predictions area?

    What's takayasu doing with that stick?

    Haru 2023 Power Rankings

    For the record, I really enjoy your analysis. The caveats are clearly stated and fair. Thanks!

    The end?

    I remember the first time Natto went down I was able to watch his videos via a link in discord. I don't remember what platform he was using then though....

    How is Mitakeumi doing health-wise? Is he ready for action?

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2023

    Thanks for the knowledge yall. It just seemed like a small jump to me. Makes sense with the log jam in the sanyaku ranks. Banzuke luck is very interesting.

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2023

    Is the move from M9 to M3 for a yusho winner a historically small jump for a yusho winner in the mid maegashira ranks?

    Not to nitpick but this doesnt seem like a good comparison. An offside is an offense, one that can take away a goal. A henka is not an offense and can lead to a win. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding your point.

    Kyushu 2022 discussion (results)

    The henka discussion always comes down to ones philosophy about unwritten rules. There are many unwritten rules in sports that fans believe shouldn't be broken. I think people generally fall into two broad categories: 1. Unwritten rules should be respected. These rules are a part of the fiber, soul, and tradition of the sport - to break them is dishonorable. 2. Unwritten rules are Unwritten. If you win within the rules of the sport then you did your job. A win is a win. It goes without saying that sumo is steeped in tradition - would it be fair to say that sumo fans are more likely to be in the first category compared to fans of other sports? I think I lean more toward the second group but I understand the first. I don't see a henka as "avoiding competing" because the move is a legal part of the competition. It's just not competing the way others think you should.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    I've been watching sumo for about 6 years now and I had no idea that the shimekomi cost $10,000! So a rikishi changing mawashi in the middle of a tournament is a 10k investment? Do rikishi ever trade or borrow a shimekomi from each other or a retired rikishi?

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Nagoya 2022

    What does it take to force 3 or more sekiwake spots in general? Is there any chance of 3 sekiwake (Ichinojo, Wakatakakage, Hoshoryu) and then 3 komusubi (Abi, Kiribayama, Daieisho)?
