Instead Al prefers to blame the faceless, borg... bOrgLando where you can just throw it over the fence and 'blame them'. Al doesn't talk about any resistance to the change either. Yet, it's perfectly fine to lump all the blame on bOrgLando when it's a bad thing, but when it's a GOOD thing, TDA was sharp...
It's a picture that just doesn't add up - no consistency.. one day it's Orlando responsible for estimates.. the next it's TDA.. one day George K is in charge and making decisions.. the next he's a blind lemming to a faceless borg.
This isn't a new pattern at all from Al.. even prior to Jay's 'One Disney' initiatives. Personally I think it's spite still from the 90s.. when DL was sitting still, and WDW was getting all the new construction.. entire new parks, etc. Which was perfect fuel for the post-50th era and the start of the One Disney phase.. and how dare someone remote and from FL be put in charge of my park, etc. There is no objectivity and consistency here..
Do we forget how quickly Al was lapping at George K's shoes in his first 6months? George is great... they can push for great operational impacts.. all glowing.. and all failures were from FL.. and now.. George is just some drone following some evil FL empire? When the head of P&R is actually just up the road from DLR? Don't buy it..
