  • Omg love Athletic

  • Confusing and depressing

    By Hoopingloop
    Dingy black everywhere. Blurred out pictures hard to tell what sport the story is about. Fluff reporting that we used to get from newspapers. I get that these guys are trying to make a living but to pay $5 a month I need more in depth analysis. I don’t care where someone lives or what they eat for breakfast. I want to know if they’re a good player or have any potential. I noticed there’s no cancel button on this app anywhere apparent. Lol.
  • The Athletic is saving great sports writing.

    What a godsend! No matter what you are a fan of, or which team, you will find the best writing in print or online here. I don’t know how the owners are putting all of these great writers together, but don’t care. Just hope the business sustains itself so we can all enjoy this terrific site for a long time.
  • Pay for good stuff

    It's 2018. This is how it works now. You have your Patreon for the podcast you love. You pay for the New York Times. This is how it works now. Every day at least one of these great writers gives me content that is worth every penny. Often times two or three of them do. Pay for good stuff.

  • Great Stories, worth the $

    By Topher10000
    My only complaint is the app doesn’t have scores for MLS or any soccer leagues. There’s also a “Podcasts” tab but there’s never any podcasts. Excellent sports journalism though!
  • Now with tons of soccer coverage

    By JayHinman
    Delighted that The Athletic has decided to go all-in on soccer, both international and MLS. This takes it from a good media source and app to a great one - and they’ve hired some phenomenal writers as well. App is smooth and looks beautiful.
