Definitely worth every penny!
I follow a lot of sports and used a lot of Apps to follow my teams. I like in-depth articles about more than just the games. The Athletic does an amazing job of getting the under layers of the sports, teams, and people to give you insight and a true feeling of what’s happening. Couldn’t love it more!
Well worth the money. Great writers. The coverage is fantastic. Just do it.
Great articles and coverage for all teams I follow.
Sorry I waited so long. Really great coverage of my teams and the sports landscape in general by excellent writers.
As a third generation Browns fan, being a diehard fan is in my blood. Being a diehard, you try to find every podcast, every article, every everything about your team. I’ve been a listener of Civilized Barking for a few years, but became an Athletic subscriber in 2020 and will forever be a subscriber. Zac and Jason publish very insightful, well-written articles that enlighten as well as entertain, not to mention the preview pods, whiparounds, etc. Not only am I a diehard Cleveland fan, I’m not a diehard Athletic fan
I love this app. My only complaint is with live scores and following live games. Sometimes games aren’t listed and they aren’t easy to find. I also think adding some field or court visuals would be nice as well. Also, the podcasts are great.
Why have all this in depth coverage of my teams but not have the simple basic things all sports fans want like a scoreboard and standings? So I can read an article talking about my team being ranked #15 but I can’t click somewhere and see who’s ranked #12. I can read about how my baseball team has a deep starting rotation but see who’s pitching 2 days from now.
The app is fine but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve accidentally tapped the “meh” rating on a story as is scroll it up with my thumb. And of course there is no way to undo it.
