I had this response in the confirmation thread (stupidly. Should have put it here. sorry about that Crease).

There are two types of linkage that people often confuse. One pertains the the amount of money the players get out of total revenue, in this case 50%. That number is ensured by escrow from both the league and from the players.

The second is the methodology in determining the cap floor and ceiling based on a midpoint. So yes, there is delinkage in determining the midpoint, but only if revenue is below $3.378B.
