I can't speak for the AAHL and FHL as I'm not as familiar with the fan bases in those areas but in the South fans given a choice between a Pro league a Senior Elite amateur league, a moniker they are not familiar with, would choose the Pro league just because of the prestige of being professional and not amateur. This would likely hold true even if the level of play was similar or even slightly better in the Senior Elite league.
There would be fans would notice the difference and would attend either just the Senior Elite league games or both.
Now this idea would never happen since most of the guys in the Great Lakes League are locals. You simply aren't going to get that level of play in most of the country. Not yet at least.
