  • App doesn’t open Twitter stories

    By Danno11232124
    App continues to ask me to download it when reading a story on twitter and trying to open it then in the app. Once the app is open I then have to search and find the story I was reading. Maybe it’s just me but it’s more than annoying.
  • Pay for good journalism

    By Conwayman
    Sam Amick posted an aggregator (BR, I think) who had scooped their NBA player questionnaire. It was so egregious I signed up for a year. It wasn’t a mistake. This is what ESPN could be but won’t. And what the ringer can’t be but wants to be. It’s awesome and perfect. Wish it wasn’t soooo tailored to my fave teams but the truth is, do I really? Maybe not. It’s a perfect app/site.
  • The Atheltic is Awesome = Awesome AP

    By ElkHunter54
    As a Atheltic subscriber, the AP performance is awesome, as are the journalists and their sport related stories. Highly recommend the Athletic subscription and the Atheltic AP.
  • Worth Paying For

    By SFHawk
    I don’t mind reading some of the slop that is often thrown out on other sites/publications as long as I can extract any relevant information. The quality of writing here is what makes me willing to pay.
  • Incredible depth and insight.

  • The Gold Standard...

    It doesn’t get better than this!
  • Great Inside Stories

    By Hoopcoach57
    I had never heard of Athletic until a friends son was in an article. Really likes that article so started to explore other stories. Since I’m a big fan of women’s sports I started reading more stories on female athletes than you can find in a male dominated sports world. Great coverage for women and men....I’m really enjoying the look at the personal side of athletes in numerous sports!
  • Fantastic App

    By Chargersrock85
    The podcadt download fast, it’s a well-designed app with a few errors from time to time, but I enjoy the layout of the app and the read feature on articles.
