    What an IPPONZEOI by Hoshoryu!

    Ridiculous Predictions Aki 2021

    Asashoryu wins his 50th yusho! In attendance on senshuraku are Dr. Emmett Brown and Marty McFly!

    Aki Yusho Predictions?

    Yusho: Terunofuji 12-3. Jun Yushos: Mitakeumi and Takakeisho both also 12-3. Teru wins a 3 man playoff that goes 3 rounds! Hakuho pulls out of the tournament sometime in the first week.

    Well said!

    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    Terunofuji was truly inspiring! 2 consecutive yusho and then going 14-1. He is a deserving Yokozuna.

    Yes. Nodowa is another technique that's no fun to be on the receiving end of, but it's a part of sumo and rikishi do it all the time.

    Elbows are illegal in boxing, judo and freestyle wrestling. Elbows are legal in Muai Thai, MMA, and Sumo.

    It is, but I really though the last week was amazing. The 2 best rikishi racing to the finish. Neither losing until the inevitable showdown on the last day. One with Yokozuna promotion on the line, and the other coming back after a year long layoff.

    I wasn't talking about Asashoryu. I am not here to talk about Asashoryu. I don't know why you are bringing him up. He was great, but not the GOAT. I admit that now. Hakuho is the GOAT. And he is far from the most disruptive rikishi out there. He is both a model rikishi and a model citizen. We all just bore witness to one of the most exciting bashos in a long time. I don't see any need to rekindle old flames.

    Slaps are Sumo. Tsuppari. So are elbows. Kachiage.

    Why do we need to be so judgmental of professional athletes at the highest level. They are human just like the rest of us. The big difference is that they are always under the microscope, and we see them at their worst. Hakuho has been in Sumo for 16 years. I think it's unrealistic to expect him to go on for 16 years without ever slipping up. And these minor incidents are usually just examples of hyperactive self-appointed morality judges playing holier than thou. Seriously, a split-second fist pump? Is that really something we need to get worked up about? The man just finished a Zenshou, in a basho nobody though he'd win. All after getting calls for retirement at that. And as far as his antics on day 14 vs. Shodai, he did absolutely positively *nothing* out of line in any way shape or form. Everything he did was legal sumo, within the rules, and not in any way dishonorable. What? You'd prefer he pulled a henka? We can speculate all we want but at the end of the day Hakuho and Hakuho alone knows why he did that. It worked. He won the match. That's all that matters. The only single incident I can think of where he acted disrespectfully was a few years ago when he lost a match that he thought was a matta and would not return to the dohyo for a couple minutes. That's one incident in 16 years. That is exemplary! Very few people on this earth have that level of self-control. He should be applauded. I wonder why you are thankful that fans who have a different opinion than you do would stop watching Sumo. I for one think it would be wonderful if there were more Sumo fans around the world. And remember, just because someone doesn't come to the forum often does not mean that they have stopped watching Sumo.

    What an exciting day of Sumo we have ahead of us! So exciting that I need to make my first prediction in years. Hakuho wins, securing his Zensho. However, with 14-1, Terunofuji is promoted to Yokozuna anyway. May the Sumo gods smile upon us all. Happy Senshuraku!
