Great Content

I believe The Athletic has become the premiere sports publication. The articles are insightful and cover a variety of topics. A must read for me everyday.

What is there is solid but would benefit from more writers for each topic.

Good content, app is clunky

Once you’re in an article, the navigation is very clunky and difficult. No menu buttons, you can only hunt for the back button.

Content for the sports junkie

You pay for what you get, and The Athletic delivers. It may not be for casual fans but for a fantasy sports addict and baseball nut the content here beats whatever free stuff you’d find elsewhere. Add to that forums with the writers where they take time to respond to even the most trivial sports concerns and this app is my go-to. It’s also apolitical which is a huge relief for those of us who are here for sports only. It’s an awesome experience.

Get rid of the videos in my feed

Sorry...main reason I sign up (in addition to the content) was no ads. Right now I get videos in my feed that I don’t care about nor wish to see in my feed, but looks like ads. Please remove these videos

Great Article

Thanks Rick. I think you hit on many of the points true rangers fans who follow the team all year round are thinking about. I know people might want to expedite the rebuild and I’m on the fence with that. Reason why is when I look at those salary cap sites. 2-3 years pass rather quickly and those young players salaries start to get higher and higher. In hockey it’s tough to wait Few years to rebuild. The good thing is that you mentioned in 2 years we free up 20+ million in cap space with Lundqvist, Smith, Shattenkirk etc... gone. We’ll have to use that to pay our own home grown talent. I praying that there are few players that want to play for the Rangers that give a little discount (see Shattenkirk) but I doubt it. Thanks again.

Trying to cancel

I wanted to cancel after the even day trial and there is no way to do it. Under manage subscriptions it says can’t connect to App Store. I’ve sent multiple emails and there is no response. Maybe this will get someone’s attention?

The Athletic

Hands down the best app for anyone who loves sports of any kind! The layout of the app is beautiful, and an easy interface to use. The news that The Athletic provides is well written and concise. I fully recommend this app to everyone who wants up-to-date news and scores presented in a pleasing way.
