    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    There are 42 makuuchi rikishi, and will continue to be 42 regardless of how many Y/O/Sanyaku there may be. There will be no new spot created. The lowest spot will simply be renamed.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Odd that there is this discussion about Tokushoryu getting vicious at the tarawa. The knock on Tokushoryu has long been that he has a tendency to grab defeat from victory by letting up on his aite when he gets him to the edge. During keiko, the two aite fight until one qains a clear advantage, and then they relax to avoid injury. In basho mode, both fight to the bitter end. There are some rikishi who tend to revert to their keiko mode habits during the basho. Tokushoryu, Toyohibiki, Asasekiryu are a few examples.

    Ishiura keiko violence - the next scandal

    The elimination/restructuring of the regional bashos has been an ongoing discussion within the NSK for several years. I wouldn't classify it as a conspiracy.

    Ishiura keiko violence - the next scandal

    This may just be another stick being used by some members of the NSK to eliminate the Kyushu basho. Kyushu is a logistical and financial nightmare for the NSK.

    Ishiura keiko violence - the next scandal

    It has long been known and reported here that the dohyos for the Kyushu basho, particularly, and the Nagoya basho are slipperier than the KK dohyo due to differences in the clays and sands use to construct them. Nothing new to see here.

    Condensed Display

    It's my bookmarked start-up page for forum viewing. The loss of the condensed view is a real PITA for me.

    Condensed Display

    Bump. Up until the New Year, I have defaulted to the Condensed mode when reading the Unread Content page. I now get the page in Expanded mode. If I click on the mode button, it changes to Condensed, but the display remains in Expanded mode. I am curious whether this is a forum wide problem or should I start doing a lot of setting, cookie, cache, etc. checks.

    Condensed Display

    Am I the only one who can no longer get the Unread Content page to display in Condensed format. It is defaulting to, and staying in Expanded mode. Getting this on two different systems and in Firefox, IE and Chrome browsers.
