Day 1 Absences

Recommended Posts

The NSK website now shows the absences for Day 1 for Makuuchi and Juryo.

Assuming things go as usual, absences in the other divisions will be added to the website in the next 12-48 hours....

The only sekitori rikishi announced as being absent on Day 1 is:

Ozeki West 2 HAKUHO.

And Baruto should follow...

If his knee was really as bad as it was said, he should follow, but I have this sneaking suspicion that he's going to give it a go.

Thanks, Fukurou!

Makushita East 28 TAKAHAMA

Makushita West 39 HARUNOYAMA

Sandanme West 8 ICHINOTANI

I do for Harunoyama, Ichinotani, and Dewanofuji down in Jonidan. I think Takahama will (in vain, IMHO) continue to try to get his final five sekitori basho together to qualify for a toshiyori, after all he's still just 30 years old. Unless this kyujo is a sign of a really bad injury, of course.

Edit: Hakutoarashi should be Hokutoarashi and Ochinoumi should be Osanoumi, btw.

Thanks, Fukurou!

You're welcome (Holiday feeling...)

Makushita East 28 TAKAHAMA

Makushita West 39 HARUNOYAMA

I was thinking intai for all four of them. Even if he got those five sekitori basho, does Takahama even have a shot at getting a toshiyori share? (or am I confusing my shares, and a toshiyori is automatic?)

Edit: Hakutoarashi should be Hokutoarashi and Ochinoumi should be Osanoumi, btw.

Thank you for the corrections.

As long as they put together 30 sekitori basho, everyone has a realistic shot at getting one. It's all just a matter of the relative availability of shares (whether for borrowing or buying), and finding the money (in the case of buying).

(or am I confusing my shares, and a toshiyori is automatic?)

Jun-toshiyori is the automatic one (good for one year after retirement, if the rikishi qualifies), providing that at least one of the five spots is available.

Since I've unwittingly managed to hijack the thread anyway...I'm really wondering why we haven't heard anything about Gojoro yet. His jun-toshiyori spot expires this week, and there's even a perfect toshiyori available for borrowing (Oshiogawa...same ichimon, and not even owned by an active rikishi, hence little danger of it being pulled back unexpectedly), so I'm quite confused by the lack of any positive announcement. I guess he's not gonna stick around Ozumo...

I haven't checked for day 4 no-shows or day 5 withdrawals yet, but the most recent kyujo was Jonidan East 100 FUJIAZUMA (0-1) on Day 3. There's a picture of him in one of the recent Tamanoi Blogs. I think it said he'd sprained an ankle or something.

Might make sense to change the Topic Title to 'Absences' (if you want to use it every day).
