RIP Rochester Dragons

The Hunters become the hunted. On October 29, 2015, the AUDL announced the removal of the Rochester Dragons (nee Buffalo Hunters) franchise from the league, or what they call "contraction."

The Dragons will forever be part of AUDL history. They were the first pro ultimate team to play a weekday game. And, also the first pro ultimate team to host and play in a same day doubleheader (versus Montreal).

With the Dragons departure, there are no original East Division teams that played in the inaugural 2012 AUDL season,  The other three teams - Spinners, Constitution, and Rampage - only played the 2012 season.
