  • It is different

    By maclark716
    When I read that Kyle Tucker’s announcement that he was joining the Athletic, he said it was a different kind of journalism. I didn’t understand what he meant until I started reading the articles. Different is good. Really good.
  • Grateful

    By trud knocker
    I’m very thankful pop ups advertising The Athletic wouldn’t take no for an answer. Best stories I’ve read in years.

  • A different take on the sports stories you already know

    By Tboyd8202
    Thanks to the athletic, I'm now taking more frequent and much longer bathroom breaks.
  • Great journalism!

    Peter has a way of melting stats and stories into intriguing reading. Having read his stories for several years, they all come along with his thirst for a quick trivia insert, there are bundles of unexpected jewels crafted in each story. Am Edmiston story is not to be missed.
  • Follow yr team from anywhere

    By peejboru
    I like the app interface and speed. Athletic has assembled a stellar roster of writers. I can even follow the Premiere League.
  • Please fix your notifications code

    By Tadaia
    I have all notifications off except replies to my comments ONLY, yet I’m getting notifications now on scores and results. I don’t need another app sending me alerts all day. Please fix!
  • Thanks

    By Steve7seven
    Thank you for a one-stop-and-shop website that allows me to read all my favorite writers in my four favorite sports. While baseball remains my one true love, college hoops, NBA and NFL, CFB are a close 2 - 4. This site is worth every penny. Peter Gammons continues to baffle me with his knowledge even at an age where you’d think he would long for yesteryear. He’s the greatest I’ve ever read. Thank you for getting all the best writers from across the board in one location. I applaud you all.
  • Great Content — Terrible Interface

    By Kahuna Underwater
    The app provides access to a wonderful array of sports information and articles. Unfortunately for subscribers the interface is not intuitive, confusing and cumbersome. I’ll hang with it because of the content. Maybe in time I’ll figure out how to navigate the app. Technical support is abominable, slower and less responsive than any other that I’ve used over the years.
