Yahoo has an article up.

Bob Kravitz ✔ @bkravitz

While Jim is in rehab, one of his daughters, Carlie, will fill Jim's role. Will sign off on trades, acquisitions, etc.
4:09 PM - 18 Mar 2014

Quote:



Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz wrote a heartfelt plea for Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay to get help when he was arrested for driving under the influence, and Kravitz tweeted on Tuesday that Irsay will cede day-to-day control of football operations to his daughter, Carlie Irsay-Gordon, while the owner is in rehab getting help.

So who exactly is Carlie Irsay-Gordon? She's the 33-year-old daughter of Jim and Meg Irsay — one of three from the couple (who divorced last fall) whom Jim has said previously will have equal shares of team ownership when he dies.

The most famous sister might actually be Casey Irsay, who is married to racecar driver A.J. Foyt IV.

But Irsay-Gordon, who has attended NFL owners meetings for nearly a decade, will be in charge while Irsay gets the help he needs. It will be interesting to see if she speaks at the owners' meetings in Orlando, which begin on Sunday. Jim Irsay is typically visible at the events, almost always speaking to the media.

According to the bio on the team website, Irsay-Gordon interned with the Colts in the football and marketing departments while pursuing her undergraduate degree, later graduating from Skidmore College in 2005 with a bachelor of arts degree in religious studies with a minor in geoscience.

She and her husband moved from Chicago to Indianapolis with their three children.

There has been speculation for the past few years that Jim Irsay might dial back his daily involvement with the team. Perhaps Irsay-Gordon had been preparing for this day. Clearly, the team has faith in her abilities or she would not be overseeing this role.

That sounds like the most useless degree ever.

Pretty sure he didn't mean it that way.

Regardless, when you're the daughter of a billionaire, college is basically 4 years of party time regardless of what major you do.

Considering she knew she'd be involved in the family business, she was better off doing an economics/business degree of some sort. Because yes, her degree is pretty useless considering it's application to her career path.

How do you go about suspending an owner? Tell him he can't go to games?

while this is true, she's had on the job training for the last 10 years. no degree can replace that.

I absolutely agree.

But still. It would help a little. At least more than her religious studies degree would.

The difference is, in one case you have the owner doing stupid **** to himself and getting in trouble... In the other you have an owner cheating to get an unfair advantage for his team.
Wait...I thought we wanted them to lose picks because he dresses like a twat, not because of the drugs.

Equal share? Well, with 3 that's better than with 2. With 2 they could get into an impass where they strongly disagree about something.
