MLB may take issue with Dodgers' record TV deal

First heard this on 1090 and read up on it. Looks like Dodgers made a deal to only have to pay their 34% of TV revenue sharing on at set figure of the fair market value of $84 million a year increasing 4% the after a year. This was determined when they came out of bankruptcy. The problem is now their new $ 7 Billion 25 year TV deal will pay them $280 million a year leaving them $196 million they would not have to share with the rest of the league. This would be a huge advantage for the Dodgers and by huge they would probably be able to buy the NL All Star team. No way if they make $280 million a year on TV revenue they should only have to share $84 million. I mean every other team is sharing the full amount so the shady Dodgers better not get a break. Can somebody please read the article below and break this down or make more sense of this than me?
