I would like you to take the following with a grain of salt. We have here a list of rikishi leaked from a list that was allegedly compiled by the yaocho investigation committee. The committee will meet with the kyokai today, so in a few short hours we will know the truth. I am merely supplying this list of 23 rikishi so we can judge the relative accuracy of these tabloids, and sports rags. In addition to these rikishi it has been said that the following oyokata will resign from the riji-kai, not resign alltogether. Kokonoe, Michinoku, and Kitanoumi. without futher ado, here is the list of the rikishi/oyakata found guilty of yaocho. Some rumors have also mentioned Hoshikaze, but this list does not include him. However, it was said that Oguruma-oyakata was interviewed by the committee recently, so he may be a late addition.
Personally there are some names on there I’m thrilled about, no one will be happier to see Hakuba go than the gentlemen of Sumo & Stogies, but Tokusegawa, mokonami, and Sokokurai are all guys I like, and would be sad to see them go. But remember readers, this could all be a a steaming pile of ape shit that some magazine is wafting to sell some paper.
