Frankly Bud Selig does not want another team like the Yankees or Red Sox to to be exempt participating in the league's revenue sharing system. Similar to how the Long Horn Network doesn't have to share its profits with other teams by having their own network. However the existence of networks like YES and LHN have been motivated by "greed", the dodgers were just trying to stay away from bankruptcy. If the Dodgers go bankrupt it will be very interesting to see how the future of sports telecasting rights change. It is very possible that this decision could be used down the line to create laws for collegiate athletic broadcasting. Especially with the fallout of athletic conferences.
