  • The Atlantic ~ Ocean’s Of Delight

    By Groovy Moves
    I am absolutely thrilled with my subscription. In depth, easy to be immersed in the storytelling. Photos are excellent. Brilliant story on Rui Hatchimura. Just one suggestion: more Dana O’Neil please. We know she’s a Nova fan, please send her out to Gonzaga so the folks back east get to read her thoughts on what we’ve built out here. Plus, her Mom was my high school librarian -:)
  • Definitely worth it.

    Great articles.
  • The return of written word

    By Zempelda
    If you’re looking for box scores and gamers this isn’t your site. But if you are looking for honest writing, realistic reporting (good and bad) and very solid tactical breakdowns you owe it to yourself to buy a subscription. Top Notch

    Great content. This app does a great job of aligning to my reasons for reading. Fantasy, team specific, league specific, and interest level: homer only. It would do wonders for the readability if they would add a font selector. Avenir Next ??
  • Super journalism

    By nola or what?
    Reminds me of the golden age of SF Chronicle columnists from the 80s. Real humanists and fine, fine writers. Doesn't matter if I always agree;I always enjoy their thoughts. Imagine that!

  • Best sports writing around right now

    By The Pickleman
    The Athletic has the best writers and coverage of all the digital media properties out there right now. It’s a must read daily. Keep up the good work. And if Sports Illustrated is for sale........
  • App is incredible.. but one request

    By MichaelPJ78
    Love what the athletic brings me.. great analysis. But I do have one request.. can we not streamline the process of clicking on a link on twitter and going straight to the app or at least allow people to read the article inside the twitter app? Every time I open an article on twitter I have to click the link then go to the App Store and hit “open” and by the time the app opens I have to find the article myself because it just opens to the rundown of recent articles instead of the specific article I wanted. Very frustrating. Bridge the gap for me. Five stars anyways.
  • Finally a sports page app for junkies

    By McMurtry Fan
    The technical breakdowns are great. I love it!
