History of fantasy football

Postby hillbillybob » Fri May 06, 2005 9:23 am

Got a question for you. Some of you folks must know the answer. Where did the idea of fantasy football begin?

Im having a bit of a debate with some Brits. Does anyone know if it was started in the states or in the UK. We have a little debate going on here ( http://www.footballweb.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=283 ). It would be great if anyone knew the answer to this.

I'm pretty sure Dazey and Gutt invented Fantasy Football a few years ago and subsequently Arlo and Menyak found them and put them on the internet to make money off of them ... then I showed up and we had some fun and that brings us to today.;-)

After a seemingly endless night of labor pains, the discomfort soothed by a little alcohol for medicinal purposes, the birth of fantasy football finally took place at a hotel in New York City back in the fall of 1962.

probably included the likes of GP and Dazy, homless lurking in the shadows.
