Welcome to Lets Go Amerks!  As fans of the Rochester Americans we see an opportunity for a site dedicated to news and information about the team.  Over the next few months you’ll probably see a lot of variations of the site as it grows and develops, we’re planning for an ‘official’ launch just before the start of the 2007/2008 season.

Some of the many things we will be covering:

  • Game recaps and highlights
  • Team news
  • Player Stats, Interviews and Profiles
  • News about our Affiliate teams
  • News from around the AHL
  • Relevant NHL news
  • Pictures and Videos
  • The list will continue to expand…

We recognize the great coverage of the Amerks that the D&C, local TV and radio stations, and other print news papers and web sites offer, but in todays world there’s always room for more!

We are looking for a staff of writes, if you’re interested please register on the Forums and send a Private Message to ‘bucky.’

Stay tuned.
