How about that (NLL)

FILLING THE HOUSE: NLL attendance continues to grow, with preseason attendance this year up almost 20%, with a preseason record crowd of 12,857 in Calgary two weeks ago. The League's average attendance last year of almost 7,500 per match trailed only that of the NBA and NHL in terms of professional indoor sports - beating out indoor soccer, indoor football and the WNBA. It marked the third straight season of attendance growth, directly relating to a 12% increase in net box office receipts in 2017.

Indoor/arena football should be ashamed of themselves I'm talking about the ones who think of themselves as the big league players of the sport.
I think ashamed is a bit much but point taken. However keep in mind the 5 AFL teams plus 3 former AFL teams in other leagues, all together are roughly averaging 9-10k (NET).

The NAL greatly improved the travel situation with no Monterrey and starting to lump teams in NE and South. Look at the NLL - they have teams coast-to-coast. Is it a true bus league, no, but you can't lump all these teams on each other that easily. Let's see how 2018 goes.
