Already, sports-business insiders have speculated whether the Dodgers will score the richest TV deal ever in pro sports. According to a study by independent consultancy Desser Sports Media for THR (see sidebar), should the team follow the path of the Yankees and start its own network, during a 20-year initial term, the Dodgers could generate $8.5 billion in TV revenue. "[The valuation] goes a far distance to explain the actions of various parties," says Ed Desser, who led the study. "There is certainly no question that there is substantial value there."
but most of the media keep giving the new ownership the benefit of the doubt.
Other owners are going to be furious if the Dodgers are allowed to exempt a big chunk of their TV billions from revenue sharing, as is the persistent rumor.
