  • Lots of varied, quality content

    By professionalstrugglr
    Lots of varied, quality content every day. Definitely more than worth a subscription!
  • The Athletic Is Solid

    By Engelken
    I am loathe to pay for content on the internet, but I made the exception for The Athletic. It is just as solid as it gets. I signed up mainly for Rustin Dodd and his stellar coverage on the Royals. But everything that goes along with this site is outstanding.
  • The best

    By Cool Ryan
    As a college student, I don’t have a lot of disposable income. However, the little I have, is more than worth it to get the quality of athletic coverage this site provides!
  • More than I expected

    By DougT in DC
    The Athletic is for sports fans who want more than a game recap and quickie interviews. They write about how sports are changing and the people in the middle of it all. It’s some of the better sports writing you’ll find.
  • Great Site

    By Redhawk46860
    App keeps getting better. Love the content. Do yourself a favor and sign up if they’re in your city.
  • Quite Amazing

    By SmokeyDumba55
    Sports coverage can often veer too far to the “homer” viewpoint, or get thrown into the echo chamber on one of the coasts. This format really busts that up. When my favorite writer left my local paper I followed him here, and Russo has never really done me wrong yet. Great non traditional writing, extremely quick with content, integration of the readers comments, slick interface to use, very fair price are just some of my observations. Most important though, they can cover hockey well. Thank you for that. Good job! Tim Wurtz
  • Worth it!

    By CobraButt
    Not over-hyped!
  • Coming along

    By Wep25
    Great writing and well conceived app. Still limited on writers; in my region only a baseball writer is on board. As this gets better this has great potential.
  • Refreshing

    By Pete888373972
    This is my new #1 go to app for sports journalism. The local talent they have hired to cover the DFW market is second to none. Well worth the subscription!
  • Outstanding

    Love the content. Love the absence of ads and video. This is becoming my go to source for all my sports information.
