Eisner says Iger already in charge at Disney

Posted | Contributed by supermandl

Although Disney chief Michael Eisner doesn't step down until September, he says the transition in leadership has already happened for his successor, Bob Iger.

Read more from Reuters via CNN.

If so, then why the hell is Eisner still there?
Just to annoy all the Disney fanboys :) Isn't that a major part of his job description?
Because he wants to get paid through September ;)
If his contract extends through to 2006, he gets paid to be there regardless if he's there or not.

And no millrace, that isn't part of his job description, he added that himself!

millrace might be on to something. After all, every drama needs a villian; Uncle Mikey might just be serving as a lightning rod.
He is probably still there to assist Iger and give him support if there are any problems he is unsure of handling.
I think he's there to soak up the attention from the 50th Anniversary celebration... why would he want Iger to enjoy that? Gotta preserve his legacy, ya know?

Then why doesn't he just walk around the park breaking lights, knocking over trash, and closing attractions?

Add "punching Mickey Mouse in the face" to that list and then you're onto something!
