Stocks D / Disney

I read with interest the compensation package given to the CEO for Discovery Communications. The man took him a little under $50 million.

Iger, I believe, took home roughly $40 million.

So, my question is, should Disney have paid its CEO more? Personally, I think both individuals should have made much less. But I know I tend to be in the minority on that count, so, given that DISCB has a smaller market cap than Disney, and that Disney arguably is more difficult to run, I have to admit to some curiosity as to what those who think Iger is worth the money believe when given this comparison. If we paid Iger $60 million compared to DISCB's $50 million-CEO, a number that would not economically kill the Mouse, would we have gotten even better performance out of the stock?
