  • Growing fast...

    By Illinimccoy
    Love the feel and read of mobile app and am totally fine paying for good content. Unfortunately, I’m in the KC market so we are still a little underserved with Sporting KC and local college sports. I imagine this will keep growing though and am looking forward to it.

  • Meh

    By Not happy w/ App
    So far, it’s been meh, just a few really good articles but not much that’s been really insightful. Maybe I just don’t have time to read everything. Not happy that women’s sports don’t seem to be covered. Also, I thought I’d be paying monthly, and I got charged for the whole year, so not a happy customer overall. I probably won’t renew.

    Can’t believe The Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast convinced me to pay for this crap. Supporting thoughtful and well-written sports journalism?! Ugh. Five stars.
  • Will be the undisputed best

    By twspreach
    I love the Athletic! GREAT journalism, and sleek, glitch-free app. No ads! Once more content is added, it will be among the best apps out there.

    As a college student, I don’t have a lot of disposable income. However, the little I have, is more than worth it to get the quality of athletic coverage this site provides!
