    Question Robert Iger CEO or No?

    The LA Times reports that Iger is looking more and more like a possible replacment for Eisner.

    For some reason I'm getting chills up and down my spine. Another 15 years of team Eisner on the way?

    Your thoughts?

    I say give Bob Iger a chance at running Disney without Michael Eisner in the driving seat.Whats the worst that could happen?

    Well, you could get another 15 years of budget cuts and sub par attractions and movies, for starters. Eisner's retirement is a chance for Disney to breath new life and excitement into the company. Iger is status quo.

    But who knows, perhaps he is some sort of miracle worker who just didn't know how to stand up to Eisner.

    I think Roy and Stan will make a big fuss if Iger is named.... Would be interesting.

    Just a few more months until we find out! :devil:

    Iger may be sucking up to Eisner now but he could do a 180 once Eisner leaves.

    Iger could go either way, so who knows.

    I have zero read on Iger. So does Wall St, best I can tell.

    That alone is reason to think the Board may not go with him. Wall St. needs to be comforted. Forget Disney parks. There are billions of dollars of shareholder value at stake here.

    Bob Iger is married to ex CNN reporter and former print model Willow Bay. They have a couple of kids.Dating may be a long shot

    If Iger ends up running it you will have business as usual and Eisner as Mini Me. Right now Matt is getting DL into shape and Pressler is gone, so what's not to like?

    Be optimistic..someone is painting something somewhere in the park while we read this.. :-)

    Matt Ouimet is indeed doing a wonderful job of whipping the park back into shape, but he could do even more if the CEO of the Walt Disney Company fully supported him.

    True. But the WDC is a business and im frankly shocked that they have spent as much as they have on DL with little return.It's great. Orville thinks Eisner is trying to quickly clean things up and turn everything around so no one would ever want him gone. The company would be doing too well. Basically the whole theme park business model is in the dumps. they need to reinvent the business so it can maintain itself. We love that Matt..

    I'm shocked that they didn't do more sooner. Neglect has led to deaths on rides, trees falling over in on stage areas, leaky roofs, and god only knows what else that we aren't aware of.

    As for little in return. Disneyland was the second most visited park in the world last year.

    Having a puppet CEO (or dictator, if you will) Disney would be not so good for the company. Having a pencil pusher in charge is very bad for the company.

    They need to have a balanced team looking out for both the artistic and financial aspects of the company.

    Kick out Mikey, bring in Steve Jobs, and the company will be saved. Then Steve can begin the process of repairing all the burned bridges left in Eisner's wake.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    Iger has image problems, in a big way. He is seen as either a puppet, or cronie, a wallflower, etc. Nothing that really stands out, and definitely not seen as a strong leader. He's spent too much time kissing the boss's behind to stand out as a viable candidate. People would be very suspicious if he was picked- he's got the stench of Eisner on him.
