This was in the Japan Times online, The Mainichi news online and one other  
that I can't recall. It was also picked up by Bloomberg news and a UK online  
news site. It wasn't just the Kyokai announcing it to one particular web  site.
Nobody puts Asashoryu in the corner.

This  sounds really weird. Is this in any of  the English papers? or the  
Japanese papers? or the Kyokai news? Or did you ask the Albert Hall  
management yourself in your capacity as editor-in-chief of the online  
sumo magazine?

When the Kyokai makes an announcement and names a  venue, that normally 
means that everything is signed and  sealed.
