  1. Is a knee in the Kintamayamas legal?

    Is it legal to remove his sagari as a preparatory move?
  2. New recruits for Haru 2018

  3. Harumafuji scandal

    Do not recall reading of this. His recently completed collegiate degree and his interest in children are indicators to me that he was heading in a different direction. At 32 yoa and with the financial bundle he has acquired, he won't be hurting for resources to start a new career.
  4. Harumafuji scandal

    People here seem to forget that one of the main topics of discussion during Aki was the possibility that Harumafuji was on the brink of retirement.
  5. Hatsu 2018 "Poster" (leaflet )

    Shohozan and ?Endo?
  6. Harumafuji scandal

    A Japanese police investigation is an excruciating ordeal. I was involved in a minor fender bender in Fukuoka with no injuries, and I was interrogated for several hours by officers using many blueprints of the accident scene. It was a grueling, unbelievable experience. As far as I know, nothing came of it.
  7. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2017

    Bad luck in the short term, but in the long term.......meh
  8. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Since the sansho are awarded by the press, the first requirement is a KK, the second is how many lines of press he generated, and the third is any other excuse that they may come up with.
  9. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    You overlooked Okinoumi, Kyokushuho and Endo who started life as "next Ozeki"s, but have been biding their time waiting for the right moment. Ishiura probably feels left out too.
  10. 21 Kyushu 17 - The Results

    OMG. This is a guy who takes this game seriously!! Congratulations. I always watch your X picks and hold my breath.
  11. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Don't hold your breath. It will take many years for the new dai-yokozuna to develop, and then the old one will be gone. ... And dai-yokozunas are boring.
  12. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    At my count, there are now at least 14 "next Ozeki"s active as sekitori. It's going to get very crowded up there.
  13. Harumafuji scandal

    Are we sure that Kintamayama didn't start this as an April Fool's warmup?
  14. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Didn't understand the announcement, but I would guess that it was a simultaneous foot drag.
  15. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2017

    There are 42 positions in makunouchi. Rikishi move up and down numerically. The names of the positions may change when the number of sanyaku and above ranks change, but the position number remains the same.
