The UIF seems to be the strongest business model around right now. They don't charge what AF2 does, but they make sure their owners have the jack to run a team for at least one season (that's why the franchise fees are higher). Most of the UIF owners spent their time in the NIFL long enough to know how not to run a league. The Dayton debacle of two years ago strengthened their knowledge.
As far as travel costs go, you can be coast-to-coast, but if you have the right groupings, you can keep your travel costs reasonable (at least until the playoffs).
