Will Mr. Disney be unemployed in 2008?

I think it's time to just put this question out there. I think I know what would happen if the members of this forum could vote on it, but what about all of the varied interests of the ATP Tour? Will they get together and oust EDV or is the opposition too unorganized to do anything?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

EDV - Etienne De Villers, the head of the ATP Tour (formerly an executive at EuroDisney).

This idiot has got to go, nobody likes his changes. He probably has dinner with the same idiots who introduced the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour.

Chucho and Nole are nicknames used by the players in question themselves

Re: Will Mr. Disney be unemployed in 2008?

I like the 'eaten by a pack of dingos'-option, but sadly I think he's gonna hang around a little longer and indeed mess up even more.

Can't wait for the players to go on strike to save the ATP.

This thread needs be deleted. Similar thread already posted and it lacks content.

Re: Will Mr. Disney be unemployed in 2008?

Serious question: Why do you all insist on calling Ettiene De Villers, an idiot, Mr Disney, when Walt Disney was a very popular and respected man?

It doesn't make sense to me.
