Fantasy Football  

The Vintage Football League began as a fantasy football league that combined the fun of watching NFL football and playing Nintendo 64’s NFL Quarterback Club 99.  It all started in 2002 when my neighbor’s daughter received a Playstation for Christmas.  Soon she had grown tired of her Nintendo 64 and decided to give it to my son.  He was very happy with it, but he wanted me to play the video games with him.  The Mario Kart was fun, but I could have cared less about the other ones we had.  So, we decided to get some new games.  Since I am a big fan of the NFL, we decided to get a football game.  We bought the NFL Quarterback Club 99 and learned you could create your own players and play an entire season.  So that is just what we did!

In 2006, the Vintage Football League was moved to the Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football system and some of the owners left the front office to manage their teams. 

Here is how it works:

  • Each owner chooses a VFL team before the season starts.
  • Each owner receives players from their corresponding NFL team.
  • The teams compete head-to-head during a 14-week season to qualify for a 3-week playoff.
  • Managers are allowed to modify their rosters after the season starts.
  • The owner whose team wins the VFL Super Bowl gets a prize.
