As part of a legal agreement reached yesterday regarding the non-football holdings of Colts Owner ROBERT IRSAY, it was revealed the 72-year-old "is incapacitated by a massive stroke he suffered on November 29 and is not likely to recover." Irsay's son, Colts VP & GM JIM IRSAY, and wife, Nancy, had filed separate petitions seeking to be named guardians over Irsay and his estate, estimated to be worth $10M. Both backed off after an agreement was reached (AP/Baltimore SUN, 2/29). Control of the football team was never at issue (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 2/28).
