Organized for play in 2006, the PNFC was marred by instability with first-time owners beginning with the Bothell Bulldogs and Odell Barnes.  The Bulldogs were accepted into the conference, however just prior to play an insurance check was returned for insufficient funds.  The PNFC was forced to remove the Bulldogs from the schedule and award forfeits to all opponents as it was too close to the season to remake the schedule.

Later in the year, the Skagit Valley Lightning struggled when owner Randy Rogers was deployed with his Naval ship.  The Lightning arrived at a scheduled game with the Shockers late and without uniforms.  The Shockers loaned out uniforms and played the game, even though it was to be ruled a forfeit for PNFC rules violations.  The Lightning were suspended for the remainder of the season.  Finally, at the end of the year, the Seattle Stallions ran into trouble when the management failed to submit statistics as mandated by the rules, thereby forfeiting any nomination of Stallion players to the All-Conference team.  The Stallions would leave for the Northwest Football League the next season.

Originators Dick Seuss and Guy Gabriel would leave, Gabriel moving to Arkansas, and Seuss forming the Cascade Football League with the Olympic Peninsula Eagles as it's flagship member.  Richard Fleck would leave to take the Commissioner spot in the CFL with his longtime friend and business partner.

In 2007 the Pierce County Knights management of Rich Winkle and Brandon Powell decided to split into the Valley Mustangs and Lakewood Wolves, which in hindsight wasn't the best of decisions, as the Wolves failed to finish the season leaving unpaid bills at schools and sporting goods outlets.

Following the 2007 season, financial issues and competition within the Eugene area by two Oregon Football League teams for players forced the shut down of the struggling Lane County Dragons, and the Valley Mustangs ownership opted to join the upstart Northwest division of the North American Football League, along with NWFL stalwarts King County Jaguars and West Sound Saints.  Craig Jackson of the Northwest Avalanche sold off his interest in the team to another ownership group.

With just three remaining members, the Evergreen Football League stepped up and offered to take in the Lightning, Shockers and the newly named Bellingham Bulldogs.  A fourth potential PNFC team, the British Columbia Spartans was not asked to join the EFL, and joined the NAFL-Northwest instead.

The PNFC will always be known as the first league in the region to radicalize special teams play.  Instituting the "1-point kickoff rule",  a team could score an additional point by booting the kickoff through the uprights.  The spirit of the rule was to further penalize teams and players who were flagged for personal fouls following scoring plays.  By marching off the 15-yard penalty and setting up the kick at the 50, the offended team could then tack on the additional point.  Only the Valley Mustangs Mitchell Johnson was able to take advantage of the rule and thereby scored the only point from the new rule.  The South Sound Shockers decimated regional scoring records in 2007 in a number of categories.
