The Rijicho, or chairman of the Sumo Association is always an Oyakata who
owns/heads up a stable. Every Oyakata is attached to a stable and each
man has a job, whether it is as coach,Shimpan, admin,Rijicho,etc.
Musashigawa will still be the shisho or head of his stable. Whether
Musashimaru becomes the Oyakata is unrelated to all this. He has told me
many times he has no interest or intention of taking over the stable and
I have always believed him. However, ya never know. Circumstances
certainly do change.... This one is a real doozie. I am sitting here in
total awe, something that has not happened in many years.
All this could have been prevented, but these guys just will not listen
to or trust anyone. I have tried for more than 2 years to have a serious
talk with Kitanoumi, but he has kept me at arm's length.
