  • The Facts, Only the Facts

    By OleMissReb-Schneids
    As talented as Harrison Bader is, roaming the STL outfield, as this article shows, Bernie Miklasz is an amazing, talented writer. Thank you, Bernie! I look forward daily to soaking in your craft! Well done!
  • Nothing like it out there

    By Gaunner
    Best sports news site/app out there. Better writing, better app experience, no ads. Well worth the cost.
  • Fun Read

    By Spooner227
    I loved this commentary - perspective from the past, long appreciation on the present and no promises for the future (October). Thanks PG
  • Great formatting, minor feed request

    By Xaviergurl09
    I love the layout of this app for the most part, everything is streamlined and easily accessible. My only minor issue is how content is added to my feed. It would be great if I followed a specific team but also the whole league, if only team-specific articles from my team were in the feed, and then any general content for the league. For example, I follow the Reds and MLB. I really don’t want to see daily Cardinals-specific articles in my feed (which happens now) but I would like to see an article written about a specific Cardinal, if there was something noteworthy and generally interesting to all MLB fans, such as a great pitcher or MVP candidate. Hopefully that distinction is clear. Otherwise, it’s a really nice and great service, well worth my money!
  • Too much garbage

    By Tao_Of_Jamie
    Fluff pieces. Don’t bother. Plus, I keep getting stories about local teams I don’t follow even though I’ve attempted to weed them out in the settings. Also, can’t cancel my subscription on iOS. Canceling brings me to my iTunes subscriptions which the athletic doesn’t show up as, because I’m still in the trial period. Do I wait to get billed before I can cancel?
  • Came for Barrows

    By mikeyplaysibanez
    I subscribed for 49ers info from Matt Barrows. The additional new content for Liverpool and the Premier League plus now adding Shams. The Athletic has become my first app for sports journalism. Awesome work.
  • The Best

    By Sillyp4nts
    The Athletic automatically becomes the top Fantasy sports sight/app by adding the #1 Ranker. The allinkid Jake Ciely will shoot straight and be great. Well done Athletic!
  • Worth every penny

    By EAvila22
    I don’t usually give reviews but the quality of the articles just doesn’t compare to anything else out there. Stop being cheap and pay for good journalism.
  • Great coverage, great reads!

    By Big Left-hander
