    Something up with Takanohana Beya?

    Some details are here.

    It says that he does what he has to do to get by. What he does in keiko, he does in the hon-basho.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He has lost the power to come in low and bury his face in his opponents chest. This was the secret of his bumpety power. At 34 yoa, he is what he is, and he will be slowly sinking into the sunset.

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    That's the story I heard about 15 years ago. It has continued to today with some minor variations. Orion once hinted that it may be a bit of hokum.

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    In the few keiko videos in which he appeared, he was always seen in the background merely occupying space. I have never seen him engaging in physical activity except during his hon-basho matches.

    How long has it been since Orora tried this?

    If Hakuho loses to Tochinoshin tonight, Goeido will probably be firmly in the yusho race. I wouldn't bet on a burst of kindness.

    I quit watching live steaming about the first of this year, and I have only been tracking the comings and goings of the sites for the benefit of our forum members. The time has come to pass this along to someone else with more interest in it than I have.

    Sekitori Leaderboard Aki Basho 2018

    Severely injured his hand when he went 12-0. Fought and lost on day 13, but his only yusho competitor also lost which guaranteed him an early yusho. In those days, start positions varied greatly. The 2 rikishi kind of worked out their own arrangements. Nothing was rigidly enforced, but mattas were declared if one of them was obviously not ready to go.

    Tochinoshin is banged up, and Kisenosato has been fighting with one arm in his last few matches. The recent history pre-injury match-ups between the two say that Kise may be in for a bad night.

    Now and then, there is a delayed call for a monoii. It has long been assumed that these calls originate from the video replay gyoji.
