    Ichinojo was robbed. The “hairpull” had no influence on the outcome of the bout

    Ichinojo pulled the hair in the moment Taka was trying to separate from him. Because of the hairpull Ichinojo was able to grab the mawashi in the first place. 

    Also is inrelevant, if you brake the rules - you brake the rules.

    The comment section under Jason's coverage of the Terunofuji-Endo bout is absolutely mental, 
    so many people claiming that Teru won the fight and that it was clearly rigged because of the
    rampant xenophobia against foreign rikishi..

    People are weird bro

    Outside of the this forum the sumo fandom is like that.

    You dont want to look at Chris Gould comment section. 80% of it is "sumo kyokai bad".

  3. I for one hope Takakeishou wins tomorow it will make for a excellent and dramatic finish. 

    Asanoyama vs Terunofuji is becoming an interesting rivalry. Asanoyama put great effort today and was the closest do the white star from all of the bouts between him and Teru. 

    Ps. The push at the end was really bad taste.

    Not understanding Japanese that well at all, I assumed the mono-ii was to discuss the potential hair pull. 

    I don't believe it was deliberate, nor do I believe it particularly affected the outcome of the bout, but I've seen rikishi penalised for less...

    I dont think the hairpull was discussed at all. The monoi was to check if Daieishou was alt of the dohyo first. 

  5. Even without the Yokozuna this basho was really good. Takakeishou was in good form, Takayasu with 10 wins and looking to be almost back to his sumo. The amazing debut of Tobizaru and even Asanoyama with his shaky start showed is worth the Ozeki name. 

    Also congrats to Shoudai, the best rikishi  in the tournament won IMO.

    And he might well have to face Jokoryu to get that record as the latter is also unbeaten on 3-0. 

    This is going to be really great storyline. Lets hope things unfold this way. 

    Edit: And he is already with his first loss. :(
