It is a two edged sword, it all depends on how the players respond to it. It will either tire them mentally and physically by staying on the road and not letting them go home to rejuvenate in their domicile, or it will make them ornery. Plus access to their own facility allows them for better care.
I rather have Walshes and Eddie D's method, however we will see.
