  • Fantastic Sport’s App

    By Armando Quezada
    I never thought before having the Athletic that I would pay to read about sport stories but once I tried it out, it is more than worth it! You get to read A+ writings of national sports & the teams you root for! If you are debating on whether to purchase this or not, I would highly recommend you do! Worth every penny!!!
  • Very high quality writing

    By Lee622
    Love this app and the quality of the writing at The Athletic. Well worth the cost of a subscription.
  • Excellent, in-depth reporting

    By CF_MPLS
    The Athletic provides fantastic deeper reporting than you can get from standard sport and news sites. Writers aspire to a more storytelling format that gives you greater depth and context than you’ll find at news or other sports centered outlets. It’s an intelligent and take on the sports section
  • Well worth it!

    By m.t.majeski
    It took some time to appreciate my Athletic subscription, but now that more cities have been added it has only gotten better. It’s my favorite source for New York sports news and the hockey coverage is amazing! No click-bait here! Only thing I would like to see added is a score widget (scores are updated in the app, but only widget option is a list of most popular articles).
  • Incomplete

    By Coffee in Toledo
    The coverage of the sports deemed important is very good. It is a shame that apparently The Athletic believes the only important sports are played by men.
  • worth every penny!!

    By nyyraidergrl
    solid reporting; insightful stories; so far, while i've had this app, i haven't even opened other news sights and i have not missed them either. 'the athletic' offers some of the better reporting i have read anywhere as well as engaging with readers on a regular basis through a question and answer/ mailbag feature on the app as well as on Twitter. the app is solid and so far i have had no problems with heavy use.
  • Ken Rosenthal- Dusty Baker

    By LaVille Fargo
    This is one of the very best articles I have read. I have always liked Dusty but this article gives me even more reason to like and respect him. Rosenthal just knows how to get answers from Dusty. Dusty trusted Ken and it showed. I have gained so much more respect, knowledge and admiration for both men. Just a hell of an article.
  • Brady’s salary

    By picky jim
    Really, just an edit. The author said the Patriots are “constantly a high spending team” and then said they were 29th in 2016 and 20th last year. It seems to me he should have said they are not a high spending team. Kindly of picky, I know.
  • Great app, better journalism

    By Walt walters
    Crisp, clean and a quality product of sports journalism.
  • Valuable Info

    By Bigguy2012
    As a STL Cardinal fan I can only speak for those articles, but the quality of the writing has been well worth the reading time.
