It’s not just conjecture by MASN that the RSDC ignored the Bortz methodology. The Managing Director of Bortz stated in an affidavit that the RSDC “improperly ignored facts and intentionally ignored other applicable reports that applied the established methodology” - all in order to find in favor of the Nationals, which, as far as MASN/the Orioles are concerned, it had planned to do for years, going back to when MLB was selling the Nationals franchise.
One way that the RSDC juked numbers to rule in the Nationals’ favor, MASN lays out in its petition, is that the RSDC considered as a baseline numbers from the 2007 season, which, as the first year of MASN’s existence, are not representative of how it has performed in any year since and particularly not in the present.
By shifting money from MASN profits to the rights fees, the Orioles suffer in two ways. One, they lose the 85% of money that they would have collected from what would be shifted to the Nationals rights fees. Two, they would lose 34% of money shifted to their own rights fees as part of the revenue sharing tax. If the result of the arbitration is that both the Orioles and Nationals make $60 million more in rights fees, that’s potentially $71 million annually that now goes to the Orioles that would be lost if this arbitration award is forced upon them.
