Interesting. So, in the last three months alone, you've had almost 50 CEOs from major companies resigning. It's almost as if they realised that they can't hide any longer

This one is really surprising. In a company the size of Alphabet, succession planning at that level usually takes years, yet Schmidt’s departure is super rushed and announced on the Friday before holidays. Something is definitely up with this.


#3

Exactly right.

There is something seriously screwy with all of this.


#4

I’m thinking that this might have some connection to what Trump has been planning since hid first day in office. During the campaign he mentioned that he doesn’t let his enemies know when he’s going to strike but maybe these guys know that shit is about to hit the fan. The EO the other day was a preview. Maybe this is why Sessions has been so quiet. Monopoly busting might be coming.


#5

Well we all know why CEOs of equifax and podesta groups are leaving.


#6

Papa John got the boot for explaining the business reality high cost of the failing NFL’s self inflicted PC racist America hating disasters. He’s probably the only one on the list who got the shaft on a business empire that he created.


#7

From an August 2002 article. There’s nothing new under the sun.


#8

That’s cause his board of directors called Roger Goodell for the real skinny…

Goodell was asked specifically about attendance this season and any reaction to the national anthem protests.

“Our attendance is off by one percent,” Goodell replied. “We are over 98 percent filled to capacity, which is about where we’ve been in the past. We have three teams that have either recently gone through transitions or are playing in temporary facilities, so that’s something that we knew we were going to have to deal with going forward.”

So… that tells the tail… Papa John was just making it up…:rofl::rofl::rofl:


#9

Appealing to the white supremists, KKK, white nationalists who adopted PJ’s as their official pizza which prompted the corporate office to issue a statement having to denounce them and their money. But the damage was done. Perhaps he should have focused on pizza instead of criticizing black athletes exercising their right to protest.


#10

That’s a bit of a hypocritical statement even for you… Man, sometimes your thought process amazes me…


#11

Just keep an eye on those PC BS artist in Hollywood and the democratic party ! :laughing::laughing::laughing:


#12

“Their right to protest” - what do they have to protest, exactly? They are people earning millions of dollars to throw a ball around. They are some of the most privileged people to exist on the planet.

Its funny how you keep screeching about “white supremacy” and the KKK though. Keep making a jackarse of yourself, I find it hilarious.


#13

That’s for the protester to decide…


#14

I guess profit margins are so tight for a football game that the 1% drop was enough to cancel the game…:smile::smile: Oh… Oh Yeah… its cause it fell on New Years Eve, so for the fans who paid and wanted to see it… tough shit. They sure do know how to relate to their customers…:joy::rofl::joy::rofl:


#15

So in a three month period this year, 50 CEO’s dropped.

In a two month period during the Bush administration, 130 CEO’s dropped. These things happen.
