I thought that it might be useful to post two things here: first, I am posting a list that will take you to a page for your rikishi of choice that has all his bouts organized by opponent. A big thank you to http://www.sumoreference.com for their amazing site. Second, I am reposting the Moneyshot Score Sheet.
We’re all looking forward to what you have to say about your rikishi’s progress. Leave us a comment on our daily reports about how they are doing and what we should expect from them if you have the time or inclination.

And here is the Moneyshot Score Sheet:
And as requested, here is how to calculate daily DoS. Basically, you look up the five bouts that your rikishi has fought against his opponent PREVIOUS to the current basho. Count the losses. If the rikishi lost all 5, the DoS is 5. If the rikishi lost 4, the DoS is 4, if the rikishi lost 3, then DoS is 3, if the rikishi lost 2, then the DoS is 2, if the rikishi lost 1, then the DoS is 1, and yes, you guessed it, if the rikishi lost 0, then the DoS is 0. The higher the number, the more difficult the bout is likely to be.
The calculation is based on the last five bouts because we want to get a sense of how the two are matched against each other that is more stable than looking at just one bout, but we don’t want to look at their entire bout history because if it stretches into the deep reaches of the past, it isn’t likely to predict the difficulty of their match now.
Finally, there are two possible problems to calculating DoS, if the rikishi and his opponent have faced each other less than five times, and if they have never faced each other before. Here is a link to the three possible ways to calculate DoS (normal, short bout history, first time to face each other). Click here.
