Question regarding revenue sharing

I typically don't like ESPN's Mike and Mike in the morning, but today they were discussing revenue sharing with Jayson Stark and claimed that small market teams are starting out with anywhere from $80 to $100 million in revenue sharing--so using the small market team defense is no excuse for not paying players.

I have a hard time believing this is true. Mark A certainly seems aggressive enough that I'd doubt he'd max out payroll at $90 million if he were already starting with $80 mil before a single ticket is sold.

There must be some nuance here that I'm missing. Can anybody help?
