    By Midwest Marie
    Recently bought a subscription, and although my favorite team has tanked, the coverage couldn’t be better therapy to ease the pain!

  • The Best!

    By Trh60
    I read a number of on line news services daily a good number of them relating to sports. The Athletic is by far the most informative, riveting and well written daily out there to date! Hats off to The Athletic for its NHL coverage, seldom does one experience writing as good as this, it’s become my “ go-to” when it comes to hockey news!
  • St. Louis Athletic

    I look cytokines the Athletic everyday. The articles are relevant and to the point, well thought out and through.
  • Great site!

    By traderon
    I really enjoy the format: No pop-ups, ads etc, great writing and a national perspective. Negatives: slow on articles on breaking news.
  • Annoying video player

    By Mortified_dipthong
    Otherwise a great app. Clean interface, smooth loading. Video player just keeps the play logo around too much. You can get it to stop displaying, but it’s finicky and the default should be it just stays out of the way.
  • I joined cause of Jake Ciely

    By The man313131
    If your here for fantasy football jakes rankings are worth it alone. Only issue is it is very hard to move the page from left to right on an iPhone when articles or jakes rankings are slightly bigger than the screen
  • Bringing me into the crucible

    By boonerbox
    Really great stuff, with your help I’m right there in the huddle with my favorite team. You guys, and maybe gals, write beautifully too. The Athletic wasn’t something I missed because I didn’t know any better. Now? I’m just sorry I can’t share this with my fellow Cowboy fans that haven’t signed up. Well played!
  • Really enjoying it so far

    By tombrew94
    The quality of the writing is excellent, and the site and app are easy to navigate. I am especially happy to be able to read Bob Kravitz again. He’s the best in Indiana for sure.
  • Sports writers

    By Deal Dr
    It’s been a number of years since there has been sports stories worth reading; gone were the great writers on the Plain Dealer and Cleveland Press. This group in the Athletic has emerged and raised the standard with unique insight and analysis, making stories fun again!! Great work Athletics, keep it up!!
