    They are borrowing the kabu (which is usually owned by a sekitori not yet retired).

    2011 Jan 23 KA Kasuganishiki retires and becomes Takenawa-oyakata (on loan).
    2011 Jan 23 KC Takenawa (former Tochisakae) changes to Kiyomigata (on loan).
    2011 Jan 21 KB Tochiozan buys Kiyomigata-kabu from Kiyomigata[10] (former Dairyugawa).
    2011 Jan 20 RM Kiyomigata (former Dairyugawa) turns 65 and retires.
    2011 Jan 17 OS Takadagawa's (former Akinoshima) heya joins Nishonoseki-ichimon. Since the breakaway of Takanohana (Ichidai Toshiyori) and his group has never officially been recognized there is no renegade heya any more now.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2010 Dec 29 KS At the command ("recommendation") of the rijikai Miyagino (former Kanechika) switches his kabu with Kumagatani (former Chikubayama). The new Miyagino continues the heya that he has headed for some years already, but soon after states that he sees himself just as caretaker of the heya until someone qualified comes along (obviously speaking of Hakuho). The old Miyagino was caught on audio tape bragging about yaocho but insisted that he had been medicated at that time. Additionally to the forced switch the old Miyagino is demoted to Toshiyori and will never again be allowed to become a stablemaster.

    What is this?? Who or what is a yaocho and why would someone get in trouble for bragging about it?

    Allegations about yaocho have plagued sumo for centuries - yaocho are supposed fixed bouts.

    But what many people seem to overlook is the fact that those who make the allegations have either left the Kyokai on bad terms with rikishi and oyakata or just have an axe to grind.

    2011 Apr 06 OS In the wake of the yaocho scandals more punishments are handed out; many oyakata who were found guilty of not supervising their rikishi properly are demoted one or more ranks.
    2011 Apr 06 RO Tanigawa (former Kaiho) is dismissed at the age of 38 after being found guilty during the yaocho investigations (but was adamant that he is innocent and thus refused to retire "voluntarily").
    2011 Apr 06 KC Sendagawa (former Yotsukasa) changes to Takenawa (on loan).
    2011 Apr 05 RO Takenawa (former Kasuganishiki) retires at the age of 36 after being found guilty during the yaocho investigations.
    2011 Apr 04 RO/KB Active rikishi Shimotori retires at the age of 33 after being found guilty during the yaocho investigations. His Nishikijima-kabu (that is rent to former Zaonishiki) is acquired by Toyonoshima.

    There're going to have to start recruiting from the grades school at the rate they are dismissing Sumo's for gambling!

    But actually when you consider the life expectancy of rikishi back 50 years ago, most were lucky to see 60 or 65.
