  • The Athletic STL

    By Redbirdedamerican
    Biggest waste of money I have ever made. Bernie is terrible bitter man that doesn’t put much thought into his writing given his lack of intellectual honesty. He alone is the reason that I will not renew.
  • Joined for Russo, but it’s all great

    Mike Russo is boss... love his writing and covering of the wild. The Athletic has done amazing job getting some of the best sports writers. It’s better than bleacher report and espn. There’s actual meaning and truth to there writing.
  • The best in sports journalism, bar none.

    By Skrshawk
    This is the kind of in-depth reporting nobody else does. Even if you follow only one team it is well worth the price of your annual subscription, and if you follow multiple leagues or teams it’s a downright bargain. You don’t have to turn your brain off to enjoy sports.
  • A thoughtful alternative

    By Tampa claire
    I love The Athletic. It’s a sports mag for people who get the allusion to The Atlantic, as well as those who just miss deeper, smarter coverage of their team. ESPN is excruciatingly banal - squelching their own best young voices - it’s the blandest if bland. The Athletic has a point of view, and it’s a thoughtful, fun-to-read one.
  • Great app

    By Gauss743
    The app is great and the content is even greater.
  • Love at first sight!

    By Noxual
    Best sports news site in the biz! Been with The Athletic since Scott Powers joined. Have enjoyed the ability to let his content expand. Coverage is great across the board. Great interaction with writers. The contact us peeps were great. Pumped they put in the link to the App from twitter
  • Love the Athletic

    By Dylan Creighton
    My teams are not all local. So find me another sports newspaper that I can customize to my specific teams. Then find me one that has as many quality writers. THEN after all that, find me one with no ads. The Athletic is worth every penny.
  • Hate the paywall.

    By PMASH
    But decent content.
  • Great sports writing

    By Junk4j
    It’s getting harder to find great sports writing gathered in one place. So far this has been worth the modest price to support some of the best sports writers doing what they do best.
  • NY Giants-Dan Duggan
