JUst a shame. Ama had my admiration for initially being underdog and making it to the top. I remember him years ago, when he was the lightest in makuuchi year out year in and he still kept on rising slowly. Think he deserved the rank of Yokozuna fully and its a complete shame he had to go.

Hi everybody!

Here is a message from Marushiki-zeki, chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council.

All the best,

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Venerable Rijicho.
 
The BSYDC has met and had a brief discussion on Ozeki Rubensan. We are very pleased to see his excellent performance through the year.   

It has been decided that we should wait for the next Basho to see how he performs, then we will go into deliberations on if he is fit to promote to Yokozuna. 

We would like to offer him encouragement, to continue the fine form he has attained.

The BSYDC would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a safe and peaceful new year.

Marushiki (Chair YDC)

Well, now its official, Harumafujy was forced out, or he resigned before he got forced out... the outcome is the same. One less mongolian Yokozuna to rule the sport... too early for me to collect my thoughts about this, but i will miss him... he was perhaps too reckless in his attacks, sometimes unstable, but still... except for the other top mongolians, there was nobody who was able ti beat him in a straight fight... funny enough, some years ago, his biggest nemesis was kotoshogiku... time has changed...

Hi everyone,

Here is the new Bench banzuke, put together by Jejima, Kaiomitsuki and Flohru.  (Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari watched on).

It was fairly straight forward to put together.

Just a quick note regarding the sanyaku...

It is the Bench banzuke makers policy to have 8 members of sanyaku whenever possible.  With this in mind, it has long been established that 12-3 from M9, 11-4 from M7, 10-5 from M5, 9-6 from M3 and 8-7 from M1W does not guarantee a promotion to sanyaku if we already have 8 (or more) better candidates.  This is the reason why Gurowake finds himself ranked as a komusubi on the banzuke, but Saruyama does not.

All the best,

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Well, I won the world championship with ease but missed out on the 300. I also lost the Sumo Game yusho AND the green mawashi courtesy of Scott's missing that fusensho on day 13 - is that revenge for the Baka Cup loss?? Only joking...I'm not bothered, but it did make me laugh at how just one small action by an completely unconnected player can have such a drastic effect.

Overall it was a pretty good year. I've ironed out most of the problems with my picking system but I've noted a couple more this time and will be eliminating them for next year, when I intend to smash that 300-points mark.

GAMBARIMASU!

The Panda's 12-bout winning streak came to an end at exactly the wrong moment, costing him the yusho. Still, he will be back at ozeki in January. Chankoyama was the star for STI this time, easily winning all the scoring categories and really lighting up the basho with that 10-0 run. She will definitely have put the top players on notice that a new formidable player is in town. Seisset, Gary, Rupert and Renaud all finished with strong scores and Seb got his last day KK too. Congrats! There was misery for Jan and Ganzo though with 5-10 finishes and returns to Maegashira guaranteed. Owl came back again to finish 7-8 and will be lamenting that final-day loss.

In Juryo Hal impressed with a 10-5 jun yusho and he'll be running with the big dogs in January. Mark got 9 and may get promoted. Stefan got his 8. Sadly Ronnie got five and will be in Makushita next time. Jezz fell to MK on the final day and is doomed to another basho of languishing in the bottom division.

Promotions/Demotions:

Panda will be at ozeki. Renaud may be promoted to komusubi. Rupert and Seb are probably just a bit too low to make it, but will be back at the top of Maegashira for sure. Owl may just survive again. Hal will make his Makuuchi debut. Mark may join him, but it will depend. And Ronnie is almost certainly back in Makushita.

See you all in January.

Hi everyone!

I have some good news.

The banzuke committee has started its discussion, and it has been decided to promote Jakusotsu to the rank of Ozeki.

He has met most of the basic guidelines for such a promotion (30 wins over his past three bashos, with the last basho being ranked at Sekiwake.)  His impressive yusho in September, followed by a solid 10 wins in his Sekiwake debut this basho were deciding factors.

The rijicho Jejima has sent Flohru and Kaimoitsuki round to Jakusotsu's heya to deliver the good news.

We look forward to reading Jakusotsu's promotion speech.

Jejima (BS rijicho)
