    Sumo ‘What ifs?’

    Maybe Kisenosato would (also) be in the Olympic opening ceremony were he still active. :P
  2. Hopefully it makes its way to the US…

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2021

    However far back the last ten instances go, but never earlier than 1935.

    Local Sumo Customs

    Alas, that channel seems to have deleted or made private all of its videos. :(

    Attached: my first pass at 2021.09 GTB using Hālian's GTB Secret Sauce™, that is to average out the last ten instances of that rank-record combination, and then fill the bandzuke based on the results.

    Sumo ‘What ifs?’

    I'm an alternate history nerd, so I regret not finding this thread earlier. What if Ōsuna-arashi didn't go for his fateful drive? What if kōshō seido were never abolished? What if the concept of yokodzuna never existed? Or the limit on foreign deshi, or the ban on foreign oyakata, or or or or :D

    The link to that thread has rotten; might you know where the thread went? o_O

    New NSK council with Sadaharu Oh

    The words necessary to express the true measure of my anger at the Ō Sadaharu committee and the NSK for coming to this close-minded, self-destructive, and actively racist conclusion are not repeatable in polite company. Nevermind the obvious conclusion that everything recommended is more or less the exact opposite of what should actually be done. This but unironically

    Interesting thread! I'm looking forward to reading the book…
