IN SETTLEMENT, JIM IRSAY GETS TOTAL CONTROL OF COLTS

          The "bitter fight" over the estate of Colts Owner Robert
     Irsay ended Friday, according to Welton Harris of the
     INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS.  Under terms of the settlement,
     Irsay's son, Jim, will keep the team, and his widow, Nancy
     Irsay, "will have no stake" in the Colts.  Daniel Luther,
     attorney for Jim Irsay, said the settlement makes him "one of
     the very few owners in the NFL who has a 100 percent
     ownership of his team."  Although settlement details were not
     made public, Harris wrote that those "familiar with the
     agreement" say it "could be worth close to" $12M to Nancy
     Irsay (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 12/8).
