The quality of the product has been on the decline for a while, when Vince retires / dies, I think a lot of the sponsors and investors will be concerned about the product and how it makes them look by association, as well as how the business itself will be run in general.
Vince might not be as good as he was, but I can't help but feel he has stayed on as long as he has because he knows the company will struggle without him.
