Layout is awful

See headline.

Content may be good but didn’t pay to find out. With all free sources why would you pay for content similar to other free sites?
By Psicle

$9.99 a month? Really?

You guys are kidding me if you think I’m going to pay $9.99 a month to read some news on your app. I’m 22 years old, I can google anything that I’d like to read. You think some exclusive Ken Rosenthal articles are really worth the same same value as Netflix, Amazon, Disney+, or Hulu?.. Give me a break. Some advice.. make the content free, make money on paid ads. Unbelievable.

Total garbage

Subject line speaks for itself

Best sports site

Forget that wasteland known as ESPN. While I can’t speak for other sports their coverage of both the NFL and college football is top notch.

Good quality

Good quality content. Reasonable frequency of updates. App works flawlessly.

I’m a believer

I never thought a paid sight would bring a richness to my sports experience, but when Nick Baumgardner joined the Athletic I was left stranded without the in-depth sports journalism and had to buy in. I have only been a member for 2 months now but have thoroughly enjoyed the articles and podcasts from all my favorite sports teams. I am now a believer as the sports knowledge and spectacular writing with great podcasts makes sports better.

The best sports app

I gave tried a lot of sports apps but this is the best one. Has scores, articles, discussions, and podcasts. The layout is great and easy to use. You need to try this.
