I hit return and this only went to Jeanne. Thanks to her for her reply. 
 
But why would the kyokai even allow them to be on as banzuke-gai? They DID  
admit the crime, for all intents and purposes.

OK, yes, those are the  same two guys. I double checked on the sumo forum for 
opinions on why they're  still with the NSK - Jonosuke says:

"In court they both said they have  retired but sending out the retirement 
papers are up to their shishio, the  current Tokitsukaze oyakata. 

"The Kyokai only said they would be  kicked out if they were found guilty so 
officially no retirement filed with  the Kyokai yet nor the Kyokai has not 
dismissed them. But in all intents and  purposes they are not coming back."



So I guess they have to  wait on the legal system to run its course, while 
Wakanoho et.al. got the  kangaroo court.
