    Kyushu 2022 discussion (results)

    I think seeing the henka vs Takayasu made Takakeisho very tentative at the tachai

    Should Basho Be Taken From Kyushu?

    What they could do that I think would make sense is have Nagoya, Fukuoka and one other (presumably Sapporo) on rotation so that each got 2 basho every 3 years
  3. Inosuke gets in the way again, possibly costing Takayasu the bout

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I reckon they’d want the 33 given the 9 wins wasn’t at sanyaku

    Even bringing back the Ozeki era pre match grunt didn’t work

    How come Inosuke isn’t the gyoji?

    A play off would have been the last thing he needed

    Ishiura thoroughly deserves the technique prize

    Absolutely. And while I agree with the decision to match up the yusho contenders in the final days, they could easily have foreseen this and had Shodai face Terunofuji earlier. In a way it would be a rebuke for Shodai - you’re not putting in an Ozeki performance so you don’t get to fight on senshuraku

    Ozumo at the Royal Albert Hall 2023

    Good news but will it be a serious event or more like a jungyo where some of the bouts are about as real as WWE?
  11. Maybe in that parallel universe Daieisho took inspiration from his Ozeki promotion and is now Yokozuna Daieisho
  12. I think anything like that is better than 8 wins 3 times a year
  13. I think the answer is to make the criteria for Ozeki promotion more lenient, say 30 wins (obviously 33 isn’t a rule anyway) and take a more relaxed approach to a 9 win basho within the 30 or a result achieved outside sanyaku. The quality control against the promoted rikishi then failing to maintain Ozeki standards would be the 10 win requirement.
  14. I would introduce what I’m going to call the ‘Shodai law’ to tighten up minimum required standards to retain the Ozeki rank. Alongside the current rules, Ozeki will be required to attain 10 wins at least once in a rolling 3 basho period, thus ending the ability to hang onto the Ozeki rank for years by getting an 8 win kachikoshi once every couple of basho.

    Hakuho retires

    Surprising the YDC didn’t recommend retirement after the 10-5s
