That explains why I assisted in getting Yamamotoyama some t-shirts.  He required 14XL...

A timely review of how the kadoban rule came to be.

http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0004717373

" Tochinoshin is in “kadoban” — sumo jargon commonly interpreted as “in a corner,” which refers to a situation of being at risk of demotion from ozeki. He is the fifth wrestler in the Heisei era, and the first in 18 years after Akebono, Chiyotaikai, Musoyama and Miyabiyama, to find himself in this predicament. "

Er, what??

Ok, that's right. Would have been nice of the author to clarify.

Chiyotaikai needs an asterisk either way; while he did go makekoshi in his ozeki debut, his kadoban basho was #3, not #2, because of the kosho rule.
