  • Not what it once was

    By McMurtry Fan
    At one point I loved this app. It was everything we were missing. A sports junkies go to for technical detail about games and schemes. That has sadly been replaced with the same model that caused ESPN to lose its base. Racially charged articles with a liberal viewpoint constantly hammering the narrative of racism in sports. Save your time and money.
  • A good start

    By For Kaleb GT #22 🐝
    The article was very good. This is a good start. Just don’t drop the ball on this Coach Collins. Your players are watching; Black and White. As a wife and mom of 3 sons, and 1 daughter, my heart has ached for years because of the injustice, insensitivity, and lack of empathy that we face in this country simply because we are Black. It has absolutely been a challenge to teach my children to love with the reality of systematic racism facing them at every turn. I continue to pray that love will prevail. Again, this was a good article.
  • Do not post comments

    By Nate dogg33
    If you say a comment that does not fit the narrative the writers are saying in a story your comment will be blocked . So tired of not saying any curse words or anything against what it’s own policies say to be blocked
  • Ky football

    By Holinessgirl
    Kentucky football is the next big thing.
  • Updates

    By DreamersFFL
    Not a fan of the App layout after recent update. Not as easy to navigate or catch general sports stories, as it’s all focused on teams I’m following.
  • Ach, the price, but, ach, the writing

    By hootview
    I’m only interested in baseball, so the rest of the year isn’t as appealing. But the depth of writing in the The Athletic is refreshing in a listicle, 5-second attention span world. It’s an oasis of deeper reflection on the human condition itself.
  • Somehow getting worse

    By Jmcbks
    Limited ability to customize. Unable to manage account via app, redirected to web version. Recent update made even less user friendly. Not renewing.
  • A problem with last update

    By davet312
    I love The Athletic and very happy with app until last update. Now when I click on a link to read an article in the daily email the app opens but doesn’t open the article. It just goes to the main feed page. I’ve tried quitting the app but that didn’t help.
  • Dark mode after update 👎

    By Killermeatballs
    I can’t stand the white text on dark background, is there a way to change this? Otherwise it’s an excellent app and well worth the subscription.
  • Great coverage, but the podcast functionality is lacking

    By Dayno66
    The podcast aspect of the app doesn’t work well. Everything else is 5 stars.
