11:02 AM ET 11.23 | Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is getting a divorce from his wife, Meg Irsay, a breakup he says won't affect his ownership of the AFC South franchise. Irsay will maintain 100-percent ownership and voting control of the Colts, a franchise valued at $1.6 billion in Forbes' latest valuation. Meg Irsay filed for divorce Thursday after being married to Jim Irsay for 33 years. "After 33 years, we have mutually agreed to end our marriage," the Irsays said a press release. "Meg will continue to pursue her professional interests and her commitment to our children and grandchildren, while Jim will maintain 100% ownership of the Indianapolis Colts and his other business interests.

Sure, everybody is still friends, and then the courts and lawyers get busy and everything changes. We shall see, but she is not going away without something.

Irsay seems insufferable just from the stuff he posts on Twitter. And she's been dealing with him for 33 years? She at least deserves a medal for that.

So after 33 years and her bout with menopause he will swap her out for some vapid bimbo; probably only cost him about $150 million--seems about right. He will continue to booze, send mindless tweets and get in the queue to replace Jerrah Jones in about 15 years when Jerrah finally kicks the bucket as the most obnoxious owner in the NFL

What this means is that there is a large payout being made to her for the rest of her life equal to more than she would have received from liquidating Colts shares. She had the upper hand. If he wants to keep full ownership and her walk away from the team, there were serious negotiations to make this happen. This is simply the better deal for her.

She gets the houses, autos, dogs, kids/grand kids, and a dump truck full of money. He gets Colts.
She got the better deal, 'cause she got rid of him.
