The Arena Football league already had a "Developmental League", the AF2. It completely flopped because they were small market teams put underneath the AFL level play. They were put in 10,000+ arena's when they could only fill about 3,000 or so. The "Better" AF2 teams eventually moved to the AFL once the AF2 was dissolved. A developmental league would be a MAJOR mistake for the league.

Unless those teams were in smaller stadiums (holding about 5k people), and were attached to at least a conference, if not an actual AFL team...

I don't think that those small venues would provide enough profit for the league. If anything they would probably need to be cheaper tickets etc. Then a developmental would likely drive down interest in games
