  1. Trivia bits

    Six nakabi losses.
  2. Video Streaming - General Information

    There has been some juggling of the Sherming site URL's. As of October 11, the following are the current links for the Japanese channels. NHK has remained unchanged. NHK - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming9 NTV - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming6 Tokyo TV - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming66 Asahi - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming99 Fuji TV - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming9994 Fujitvart - https://vaughnlive.tv/fujitvartv TBS - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming6666 Tokyo MX - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming88 Main - https://vaughnlive.tv/sherming00
  3. Chanko-1 Grand Prix

    It was a foregone conclusion that Tooyama would do well in retirement. His website, when he was active, was a real joy to follow.
  4. Bearded gyoji/wrestlers

    I will stop shaving until I get a win. As long as I am fighting like crap, I will look like crap.
  5. Bearded gyoji/wrestlers

    Up until about 5 years ago, some sekitori would stop shaving for the duration of a winning or losing streak. I think the kyokai may have put a stop to this.
  6. Rikishi extra activities

    Moto-Ichinoya is looking good!
  7. All Japan Rikishi Tournament

    This is a minimal tape and brace, go out and look good event.
  8. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    As is almost any other sport.
  9. 21 Aki 17, The Results

    Oooops!!! We missed one. Thanks for the catch. Corrected. The first 2 places remain unchanged. There is some minor shuffling below them. The Professor will probably be issuing the revised standings.
  10. 21 Aki 17, The Results

    The final results: Aki 17 A B X Day 1 Y-Hi (?....?) 14 Y-Lo (?....?) 3 14 All correct 2 O1e Takayasu 22 Sw Yoshikaze 9 0 Takayasu kyujo from Day 3 3 O1w Goeido 19 M1e Tochinoshin 12 0 4 4 M2w Aoiyama 4 Se Mitakeumi 27 0 10 5 M2e Hokutofuji 16 Ke Tamawashi 15 0 10 6 M1w Kotoshogiku 11 Kw Tochiozan 20 0 8 7 M3w Chiyotairyu 8 M3e Onosho 23 0 9 8 M4e Shohozan 14 M4w Ura 17 0 Ura kyujo from Day 3 9 M6w Kagayaki 4 M5e Shodai 27 0 No match 10 M7e Chiyonokuni 16 M5w Takakeisho 15 0 5 11 M6e Ichinojo 15 M7w Ikioi 16 0 5 12 M8e Chiyoshoma 19 M9e Takanoiwa 12 0 2 13 M10e Ishiura 11 M8w Takarafuji 19 1 10 14 M9w Arawashi 13 M10w Takekaze 18 0 2 15 M11w Chiyomaru 13 M11e Daieisho 18 0 5 16 M12e Daishomaru 9 M14w Okinoumi 21 1 3 17 M12w Sadanoumi 17 M15e Tokushoryu 14 0 9 18 M13w Kaisei 25 M13e Nishikigi 6 0 1 19 M16e Asanoyama 22 M15w Yutakayama 9 0 3 20 J2e Aminishiki 12 J1e Sokokurai 19 0 2 21 J2w Azumaryu 11 J3e Daiamami 19 1 1 Note: It is unlikely that one of the absent yokozuna will return. All entries for Match 1 probably will be judged correct. No 21 matches scheduled for Days 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. This is the first time we have had everything decided by Day 10.
  11. Video Streaming - Aki 17

    Day 14 - qq live with sandanme at http://live.qq.com/10039728
  12. Videos -Wacky Aki 2017- Promo and Days 1-15

    or they don't know, but they only talk to themselves about sumo, so they don't care.
  13. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    In most places in America, affect and effect are pronounced the same. This is one of the more common mixups found in written English (US).
  14. Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 15 no changes

    At 35, Sotairyu is probably in the market for an available chanko restaurant.
  15. Harumafuji Intai Speculation

    I assume you mean kyujo vice intai. There was probably a rock, paper, scissors game between the 4 yokozuna before the basho to see who would get stuck doing the daily yokozuna dohyo-iri. Harumafuji lost. His heart is not in it.
