It was Roy E. Disney (Jr) who led the effort to replaced Eisner, not Iger. He was just in the right place and the right time after Eisner was stripped of his Board chairmanship and Disney and fellow former Board member Stanley Gold pressured Eisner to resign. From Wikipedia: Fuskie,I think you misread what I wrote if you think I said that Iger led the fight or even participated in the fight to replace Eisner. What I did say is that the one #2 guy after Wells that Eisner didn't see as a threat was the one that ended up replacing him. And most likely because he played a great possum when he was the #2 person.Eisner only appointed Iger to replace him because he new many people, in particularly the people who supported the oust Eisner movement would hate Iger appointment. And that was the case. Roy Disney Jr came out strongly against Iger being named the replacement. But like Iger did with everyone else he eventually won over Roy.Moe
