    Sansho are awarded by the press corp whose primary emphasis has become to hype the new set of pretty boys. Where possible, they vote for the rikishi who are getting the highest volume of print and video coverage.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Gotta be Homasho.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    I had about a 25 year sumo gap from the late 70's to the early 2000's. I'm with Akinomaki. The only rikishi I miss are the guys from the 70's that I did not watch struggling thru their declining years.

    "... the most disagreeable is the Panda. He even beat out All A Chishafuwaku ..." " In 21, being disagreeable can be an asset. " Note: By rule, ketteisen matches are only counted in 21 if the 2 rikishi do not meet in the normally scheduled matches.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    He made it to ozeki by giving up the inside grip, wrapping the arms and lifting his opponent out. It is his standard strong man tactic.

    Kyujo Updates for 2019 Nagoya

    Uhh.. That would be either Kakuryu or Hakuho.

    Strange stuff with my ex-adoptee Homarefuji. After a year and a half of crash, burn and kyujo, he returned on Day 13 of natsu and is now on a 5 match win streak at Jd14.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    Ami has been operating without substantial connective and cushioning tissues in his knees for over a decade. He has developed muscle tissue to keep his knees in place. The musculature is supplemented by elaborate braces. His knees are almost immune to further damage.

    they have recently had a change in shisho and training philosophy. It may not be what they are taking, but what they are receiving.

    And Ami is kyujo from Day 3.

    He has been dropping like a rock for almost 2 years. He is getting up in years, but it looks like he may be working on a chronic injury or illness problem.

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2019

    He has been on a slippery slope of late. I will be amazed if he ever returns to makuuchi.

    In 21, being disagreeable can be an asset.

    There are 26 entrants for Nagoya 19 with 546 picks ( 270 A's, 251 B's and 25 X's ). Nagoya 19 A B X Day 1 Yw Hakuho 19 Ye Kakuryu 2 5 2 O1e Goeido 18 O1w Takayasu 8 0 3 O2e Takakeisho 9 Sw Tamawashi 7 10 Takakeisho kyujo from Day 1 4 Kw Asanoyama 5 O2w Tochinoshin 21 0 5 M1w Hokutofuji 6 Se Mitakeumi 20 0 6 Ke Abi 11 M1e Ryuden 14 1 7 M2e Aoiyama 19 M3w Daieisho 6 1 8 M2w Endo 9 M3e Shodai 17 0 9 M5e Kotoshogiku 16 M4e Meisei 10 0 2 10 M4w Ichinojo 21 M6w Shimanoumi 4 1 11 M6e Chiyotairyu 19 M5w Takarafuji 7 0 1 12 M7e Myogiryu 8 M7w Tomokaze 18 0 13 M8w Okinoumi 20 M10w Takagenji 6 0 14 M8e Onosho 14 M9e Shohozan 12 0 2 15 M9w Daishoho 13 M11e Yoshikaze 12 1 Yoshikaze kyujo from Day 1 16 M10e Kotoeko 12 M11w Nishikigi 14 0 2 17 M12w Kagayaki 6 M12e Tochiozan 20 0 1 18 M13e Chiyomaru 8 M15e Yago 18 0 19 M14w Enho 7 M13w Sadanoumi 13 6 20 M16e Kotoyuki 10 M14e Toyonoshima 16 0 21 M15w Kaisei 19 M16w Terutsuyoshi 7 0 Welcome to new player ChickyStarr and returning player Peeter (without his horse). Our most agreeable player is Benihana, and the most disagreeable is the Panda. He even beat out All A Chishafuwaku and A-B WAKATAKE. Takakeisho and Yoshikaze have announced their Day 1 kyujo, so all picks for matches 3 and 15 will probably be correct. Kakuryu is in, but will he last? Let's get this thing going!
