I expect the league to have a eastern conference and a western conference next year where they try to play as many games as possible in their conference. Travelling from Cape Cod and Vermont to Illinois is going to drastically increase travelling expenses this year. I don't believe that the teams will have operating budgets of $300,000 like the league is claiming. Trips that far will eat up travel budgets that already include payroll for players, payroll for staff, housing, and equipment.

Unless the league will cover travel expenses, teams bringing in 400 fans won't survive.
