You know what’s funny is the Eisner haters and Bob lovers agreed Michael stayed around too long.Definitely think Iger stuck around too long. Same with Eisner. In the grand scheme of things I think Iger did positive things for the company, at least from a shareholder perspective, but I agree he just never got the creative side of things and I think the Disney brand has become dilluted as a result. He made it feel "corporate." The product has a certain mass produced quality to it. But you are right we're do for new blood & fresh ideas.
That said. One thing I found funny browsing old threads is the difference in community sentiment pre-COVID vs. post-COVID. Or alternatively, pre- and post- Chapek. You ended up predicting a lot of things, although most posters at the time disagreed with you, heheh. But Disney's position now was definitely not foreseen by most just ~4 years ago.
I am neither and I agree! We all agree!!
But the bobites will not say the same thing about him and it’s just as obvious.
Disney is a wreck right now and it’s gonna probably have to bottom and chapek is not to blame.
And you know the primary reason? Bob stayed too long. He got stale and stupid just like his predecessor. This always happens.
Then he “came back” because of ego and embarrassment.
That’s on Sue Arnold and the puppet board. A public company ceo should NEVER get to appoint his own board.
