You will be "treated leniently" by the Banzuke committee, based on each case separately.

Oh this will be "fun" for GTB (Shakinghead...)

At least it's easier now that we know what they're actually going to do? Nagoya's banzuke may have been hell to play GTB with but I suppose it's good to get a whole bunch of data points in and fast.

Assuming they again apply anything like the principles we thought we divined from their inconsistent decisions, as opposed to doing something even more ad hoc.

First kyujo this basho, but not a rikishi

7 minutes ago, Akinomaki said:

Shimpan kyujo: Futagoyama has a Corona case in the family and is kyujo today and tomorrow as being in close contact. He has no symptoms (no test result yet) and the rikishi were not in close contact, so they can continue at the basho. https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/202209240000589.html

I wonder if any of the rikishi who have tested positive are experiencing "long-COVID."   If so, it would certainly affect stamina.  It would be very interesting to have a list of all the rikishi who have had COVID and do an analysis of 'performance 1 year before' VS 'performance 1 year after' ....
I know recovery has been problematic and lengthy for many folks, including other athletes.  

We know which heyas had COVID, but is there a list of the actual rikishi who tested positive?

See: 

I didn't update it for the shitstorm that was Nagoya (although relatively few sekitori themselves got it), but there's the list of sekitori and when, if you want to do a before and after. Might need to fill in the recent months yourself.

What are the current food and alcohol measures?  This may be posted already but what is the daily spectator cap for Kyushu?

Full house, measures for eating and drinking are a bit vague now - not clear if the ban was temporary or permanent - a light meal is allowed o

The next Tokyo basho will again have a limit of about 87% (9265) for the number of spectators allowed, the following regional basho in Kyushu again with full capacity like Nagoya, 6976 for the Fukuoka kokusai center. Shibatayama about the differences: "The oyakata in charge of ticket sales had the idea, watching the development of spectators."

Eating and drinking at the seats is allowed now, even alcohol, about 1 bottle of sake.http://www.daily.co.jp/general/2022/05/26/0015334083.shtml

Jeez, it sounds like Lent.  I would love to be a fly on the wall when they try to do the hair-splitting of deciding how much of this and that is allowed 3 months in advance.
