With that in mind, the amount of money you get for the second tier, provided there is money still available, is directly related to how closely you spent to the midpoint in the preceding season. Simply, if we spend to the midpoint we get no money. If we spend $4m less than the midpoint, we get $4m. It could be wrong, but that's how it was explained to me.
That is correct. In the 2nd tier of revenue sharing you are eligible to receive only what you spent below the midpoint of the salary cap. For example, if you spent $53 million and the midpoint was $54 million you would be eligible to receive up to $1 million in the second round of revenue sharing provided that there was money still left to be distributed.
