Hodgson crowned World Champion at Brands?

Here's a thought. If Hodgy does the double at Brands on 27th July and Xaus scores 22 points or less then we have a new British World Motorcycle Champion!

Even better Walker. Or even Shakey if he gets a wildcard.

Have to say that even if he does win it there it must be a hollow victory,you can hardly call him a WORLD champion.
I f he gets a ride in moto gp because of this year i will be one ****ed off Ducati fan.
He hasn't had any real rival to race against.
I hoped and prayed that Walker would settle onto the bike a lot sooner but i don't think the Ducati suits his riding style,lets hope that Xaus has found a setup for the front end that he likes.
He said that he was having trouble getting any feel from the front of the bike but after the last two races i hope he has this sorted and will win everything from now on and beats hodgson to the title.

Hmmmmm...

So let me get this straight. Opinion so far is that a british guy, regarded by all as an excellent rider, whose come back from the wilderness and proved himself on last years machines, decent guy who has time for the fans and who rides a Ducati, would not be a popular world champion with the members who have responded so far to this thread.

What do the rest of you think?

Henners just because he responds to the fans doesn't make him a world champion.
I will give you this he has won the Ducati cup if he wins this year.
Besides how many races did he win last year when Bayliss and Edwards were in the championship.?
He has been riding for years,he was a factory rider with Ducati before and he was up against real competition then and he did nothing.
I will be the first person to cheer him on if he had some competition but he hasn't.
Bayliss and Edwards were true world champions.
If Hodgson get's a ride in Moto gp he will go backwards.
He will then be up against around fifteen world champions,and can you honestly tell me he will win races in gp's.?
Also about last years machines, they were full factory supported bikes.
At the start of a race he would get away and as soon as one guy got past him he crumbled and went backwards.
I'm not saying he is not a good rider but he has not done enough to prove to me his a world champion.
Even if he wins the title like i said it must be a hollow victory.
Just my opinion.

Wrong Henry!

Few (only 1?) of the replies have said they'd not like Hodgy to be world champ! Most have been to say that someone else winning this weekend would be nice to see and that it would also go one step closer to opening the championship up a little.
