    Re: Eisner's last day with the Co.?

    i think ask mike has a point... he did save the company when it was in need, and revitalized the animation departmant... but this was also the same person who half destroyed the company and pulled the trigger on that same animation department almost 20 years later...maybe he was a hero 20 years ago when he saved the company, but he isnt anymore.

    At work, we often have going away parties after the person has left.
    I'd like to have a gathering for CM Matt's anniversary. It was some time in October. Maybe the guest of honor could show up (hint to his message board readers).

    Re: Eisner's last day with the Co.?

    But the question is if they are releasing Eisner's prisoners, like Dreamfinder, and then annihilating the dark floating prison.

    WELL SAID!
    I couldn't agree more...
    I am one of those (old enough) that remember when Michael Eisner took the reins...
    Man, he and his team (Wells, Katzenberg, etc) COULD DO NO WRONG!!!
    He was a hero to me for the longest time because he saved Disney from greedy corporate raiders like Saul Steinberg....
    If the raiders had there way, Disney would've been broken into parts and sold individually.....
    Somewhere along the line, he lost his way...
    It's kind of interesting to look at the time-line of events...
    Things seem to have gotten crazy when Frank Wells died, then Katzenberg leaving....
    After that things went down-hill...

    Don't forget the quadruple bypass heart surgury right around that time.

    Re: Eisner's last day with the Co.?

    I honestly admired Eisner and never wanted to belive everyone else when they said he was greedy. I even once had a dream that I would be able to atleast have dinner with him once. But the day in November when Roy left the company is when I had to admit that Eisner was really running Disney for the money.

    The real question is whether Disney will release a limited edition commemorative pin? -- Probably for $12.95

    To be honest, I don't believe they have truly made amends with him. Ending the Savedisney campaign and the few agreements that they did make I think were all for just ending the drama (on both sides) and saving face.

    when it comes down to it, primarily Roy and Stan are probably still hating him more now than ever. they are just keeping it to themselves.

    think about it.

    I don't know about Stan or Roy (nor do I care to), but Diane has definately made ammends with Eisner and the Disney Company in general. She wouldn't have been at the 50th if she had not (after all, she did not have to save face and she had no part in the drama)

    Re: Eisner's last day with the Co.?

    I don't think Diane really had that much of a problem with Eisner, she is for the most part pretty quiet about company affairs. she really stays out of everything, actually that whole family does surprisingly.

    But just because she was at the ceremony with them does not mean that things are all good.

    It's not that surprising considering Roy (her own cousin) kicked her husband out of the Walt Disney Company (and of course, Eisner coming in at the same time didn't exactly make them best friends).
