To the the CHAMP!...

Got a q for all...if you were N. Hayden

Would it be better to be the champ and then suck...or never be the champ at all?

i'd love to be a world champion...but then to regress so far, knowing what you could be doing, and not?!?!?

Or would it be easier to know that you're just not a world champ but a really good rider, just dont have the best luck/team...?

LUIS...OTP...

If you were in NH shoes...would it be easier for you to have won the championship, and suck now, or better if you'd never won...

I was trying to show support for both sides in the original post

ever heard the saying "better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all"... same deal i guess...

I think losing something you've won is worse than not winning it, especially when you don't put up a fight to keep it.

Has anyone seen my marbles ?

Good question.. Im sure Hayden is wondering whats going on...but Im sure he'll get over this season he's having, and take comfort in the fact that he was champion at one point in time.
HOWEVER...Im sure there are those who use this seasons performance to validate the argument that he "lucked" into the championship last year....
Be that as it may..it certainly has to be a kick in the Nuts to be ridning around with that big #1 on his bike, and fighting to break into the top 10.

Second place, yeah no one remembers you. Champion, they will remember you only if you win consecutive championships or multiple championships. If not, then you are a one shot wonder, and the question will always be asked, why didn't he do more.
