Dodgers Bankruptcy Deal Exempts Local TV Revenues From Sharing Rules
Bloomberg today has a fascinating article that claims the Dodgers' bankruptcy exit has an incredible clause limiting the team's exposure to local TV revenue sharing. Only the first $84M of RSN revenue would be subject to revenue sharing; by contrast, normally 34% of such revenues are required to be shared with the league. This effectively gives the Dodgers quite a bit of leeway, perhaps even more than the Yankees have.
