  • Best Sports News, Period

    By Mikeythed
    The Athletic is where the best sports journalism lives. Worth more than it costs... I read it every damned day. Simply excellent.
  • I Use It Daily

    By big cubs fan
    I’ve never had an app on my phone that I’ve checked or used everyday, until the Athletic. Seriously. Best sports coverage in the world. Must buy.
  • What a sports outlet should be

    By elevate & detonate
    The Athletic has a terrific group of writers, editors and content creators - but what sets it apart from other sports platforms is the lack of pop up ads, auto-play videos and the many other distractions that litter the online pages of ESPN, USA Today and so many others. The Athletic is a great read and the lack of clutter on the page makes it a 100% more enjoyable experience and well worth the subscription fees.
  • Paying to use service?

    By kolby_wan
    I understand the need to make a living but it’s tough to subscribe when bleacher report also provides adequate content for free
  • Not worth

    By Nick451
    Too many requirements just to read a simple article! Annoying
  • For the True Sports Fan

    By BlueAero91
    Offers In-depth reporting and analysis that is, quite frankly, not available anywhere else on the web or in print. If you are a true sports fan who finds the sports page of your local paper wanting, this site is for you.
  • This is a rip off!! I downloaded the app for one article and I can’t even find it!

    By Mr. Perfect!!
    This is a rip off. Looking for one article “ The worst team I ever covered” yet can’t find it!
  • Caple rocks!

    By UWHiggs
    That is all...Caple Rocks
  • Incredibly good

    By Carter2665
    I love The Athletic. I originally subscribed just because my favorite reporter Andy Bitter went to work there. I still love reading Andy’s insightful coverage of Virginia Tech football, AND there are so many other great articles I read on a daily basis! Who would have thought that a paid subscription service business model would work in 2019, but this site is fabulous and a great value for any sports fan
  • Great

    By JD in Minneapolis
    This review is not worth reading. The app is great. 1 gazillion times better than ESPN app.
