Ms41e Ikioi - please report to the nearest blue courtesy jacket

Honestly, I think he's about to acquire one very, very soon. Will be sad to see but at least he'll get more time to work on his golf game!

Anyway, it's hardly just Chiyonokuni alone who has developed a reputation for dropping out with injuries that other rikishi stupidly try to tough out; it has become a relatively frequent occurrence with Kokonoe-beya as a whole over the last decade or so.

Sounds like the beya has a bit of an interest in preserving their rikishi's career's, in that case? Good for Chiyonokuni to go kyujo and heal up. I wish Tochinoshin would do the same...

Tochi's 34 and his chronic knee will never heal up. Personally, I'm sure he's just enjoying his time as a sekitori and will go intai when he drops to Makushita if not Juryo.

According to Raja Pradhan, the jawbreak happened on day 3 already.

And that explains why unscrupulous people like Ishiura and Chiyoshoma made it a point to slap him around. It had to be known Akiseyama's jaw was iffy so they aimed at a weak point.

Saving themselves the trouble of the henka they would otherwise have employed.

If it's a choice between losing and exploiting a weakness most would choose the latter. The glorious exception was Asagyokusei who obligingly spraddled to the clay after a couple of light shoves against the utterly discombobulated Shonannoumi in January.

They announced Akiseyama's kyujo, then looked around for Akua and he was still coming out of the hanamichi.  Is this normal?

As far as I know, if your opponent is kyujo then you wait at the hanamichi until it's time to collect the win.

Same in every competitive setting, I suppose. If you can gain an advantage, you do. I remember a soccer star who kept a lingering problem with his big toe secret for years, out of worry everybody would be stepping on it. And knowing Italian interior defenders (a.k.a. career criminals) he was probably right.

That might also explain why Chiyoshoma and Ishiura are sekitori stalwarts, while Asagyokusei... not as quite.

One returnee (well, a late entry really) and five withdrawals in the lower divisions, ahead of Day 9.


Returning:

Ms21e Oshoryu - fusenpai on Day 2 due to cellulitis


Withdrawing:

Ms33w Ofukasawa (fusenpai Day 8) - helped away after his previous bout, seemed like some kind of foot or leg injury.

Ms45w Narutaki (fusenpai Day 8) - Isenoumi-beya reports a torn right biceps tendon.

Ms54e Oginohama - reported here as a likely leg injury.

Sd26w Daishosei - similar situation here, he couldn't stand unaided after his last bout, wheeled away.

Jk15e Chiyoshishi - right foot/ankle strapped and offered little resistance in his bout today.

Auggghhh!  No sekitori for Narutobeya until maybe Delgerbayar next year.  Top three are falling:

Oshoryu down from top Ms7 with cellulitis,

Anzai on a 10-bout (!) losing streak from Ms36 must have something wrong going on,

Ofukasawa at Ms33 injured and out.

Only Marusho 3-1 at Ms49 still hanging in there (oops, inx-jay!)

There was also Sakurai showing more early promise than Marusho, and I don't think he was ever the same after his 2019 injury.

Hagiwara was out several bouts with an injury last basho too. A bit of a brittle heya?

If Akiseyama didn't want to be slapped in the jaw he could have sat down earlier.

Winless Chiyootori has withdrawn. Daishoho to get the fusen.


Left shoulder glenoid labrum (ligament) injury, apparently something lingering from the Haru basho but made worse on Day 7. One week treatment required, so maybe he'll be back?

One returnee and five more withdrawals ahead of Day 11.


Returning:

Sd85e Tochihayate (withdrew on Day 7)


Withdrawing:

Sd20e Nakashima (fusenpai Day 9) - Musashigawa-beya reports worsening back pain.

Sd55w Kawamura - another Naruto-beya kyujo.

Jd11w Onagaya

Jd23w Bushi (fusenpai Day 10) - left knee injury, see below.

Jd53e Wakaazuma


Bushi suffered a left knee injury in his bout against Yasunishi today. Although the gyoji initially awarded the win to Bushi, the shimpan held a mono-ii. After 2 minutes 20 seconds, they decided that the rikishi fell together and a torinaoshi would normally take place. However, this was the first example of the new rules that allow the shimpan to determine that a rikishi is unable to fight, brought in after the Shonannoumi incident in January - ironically, it was the same crew from that bout (minus a temporary substitute) that was involved in this one. 

I guess years ago this bout would have been an itamiwake, but that's gone the way of the dinosaur so Yasunishi won by fusensho. Really unlucky for Bushi, both for the injury and the loss.


Shimpan discussion.

Somewhere there's a picture of me at 4 years old sitting in my great-grandpa's wheelchair. It looks like that.
