    He uses it quite a bit, but in the past I've always taken it to mean "all over the place". In today's commentary however he gave a clear exposition: it means linear motion (i.e. in this case east-to-west). I think Yamanashi's reasoning might be right.

    Someone should have a word with Hoshoryu, his bowing is becoming more and more non-existent.

    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    I think I was getting the two confused. I have a photo of Hakakku on the dohyo with nine of the ten sanyaku from Aki 2022 (Abi was kyujo), which must be the chairman's greeting.

    Do the rank-and-filers get drafted in for the sanyaku dohyo iri?

    I enjoy Hiro's commentary and like to give him the benefit of the doubt but am struggling to interpret "Sadanoumi did not go laterally today he tried to go forward north and south" :)

    I didn't see it but you're not alone, dingo mentioned it yesterday. Really surprised to see how easily Onosato dealt with Kotozakura, quite a similar ending to his batch with Kirishima but no doubt about the result this time.

    Yeah maybe because Onosato was further inside the dohyo they neglected to look at Onosato's feet. I agree Kirishima was dead body (well as far as I understand it) but Onosato definitely looked dead body first - two feet in the air and heading out the dohyo must qualify! None of this takes away from Kirishima's poor sumo of course...

    I don't understand the Onosato decision. Looked to me that Onosato was both in the air first and landed first.

    It's strange you should say that, I remember looking up his stats ages ago and thinking the exact opposite. It seems that he switched styles to yotsu about two years ago. https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi_kim.aspx?r=12699

    Don't know about that, the san'yaku are looking better each day (I guess they couldn't have got worse). His main worry has got to be that there doesn't look too be any Kirishima-level opponents. Last couple of bashos his joint keiko results haven't been reflected in the basho. It can't just be down to his stamina can it?

    No monoii for Nishikifuji v Ryuden? It looked like Ryuden's hand touched down at the same time as Nishikifuji

    Ridiculous Predictions Natsu 2024

    Takarafuji yusho. He gives the credit to ex-Ishiura who has been subjecting him to relentless Benny Hill style Keiko.

    Yes surprised not to see Onosato at number 1
