  • App keeps getting better and better

    By SCLEV99
    App has been steadily rolling out some great new UI features. A few that would be nice: 1) setting to not display read articles in lists. 2) show back button in story always. Currently only reappears if you scroll back up a little. 3) allow user to have start page be full feed or favorite team. BUG - app still doesn’t show certain Athletic podcasts. Only shows Toronto and Chicago podcasts.
  • Best Bay Area Reporting Bar None

    By Raider Fanatic
    When all of the local reporters were lured away by The Athletic, I felt compelled to subscribe at full price. I have not regretted the decision and if I don’t get to read the Sports page in my local newspapers, I really don’t miss it at all.
  • Best content and app to match

    Joined for Russo. Wasn't expecting the app to be as perfect - aesthetically and functionally- as it is. Nice job.
  • Thought it would be better

    Not worth it.
  • This is where Quality Writers go to ply their craft

    By Frankmurph
    When sports outlets run by tv money or lack thereof, or newspapers cutting payroll and bodies because of the dumbing down by us the consumer decided to stop buying papers, where do quality sports story tellers, observers, and analyst go. Well until recently, I think mostly local blogs. Now, there is this new platform, the Athletic that combines the national perspective with the regional. Really great writers from my home region, like Dana O’Neill and Rich Hoffman give us both local, regional and national insight. This site along with are the essentials fo college basketball. Oh, Seth Davis in charge is an inspired choice.
