I read the Athletic for the coverage of the Packers and other Wisconsin sports teams. I wait with anticipation for each insightful article to drop. These aren't like many articles on the internet which are written by bloggers who write stories about the articles they read on the internet. The Athletic's articles are often news-making because of the fresh angles and smart analysis of the stories. All of the other beat reporters read the Athletic. There is no better source of high quality sports journalism.
I also love that there are no ads, pop-ups, or click bait. Many free sites are unusable. What I didn't expect is how the paid subscription increased the level of the conversation in the comments. There are no trolls from opposing teams, no unthinking cheerleaders, and no mindless outrage.
Finally, because we are the paying customers, the comments are read and often responded to by the writers. That's really cool.
Paid more than a month ago, still no access...
I paid them for a year subscription July 4, 2019. Their site took my money but hung and didn’t give me a login. I have contacted them by phone and email over a dozen separate times starting July 4. It is now August 10 and still they have not helped. It takes them up to a week to reply in any fashion and when they do, they do not make any effort to actually resolve the issue or deliver what I paid for, they send the same email over and over, clearly not reading my emails to them or listening to voice mails I leave them. It’s amazing great journalists like Sam Amick, Shams Charania and many more put their names on a brand with the worst customer service department I’ve ever encountered. I wonder if these authors know this is the way their work is being used, to get people to pay for something they never receive? It’s a shame. I’ve been getting rid of most of my subscriptions because my wife has been fighting cancer but I decided with the big July 4 sale for 60% off and the fact that I love the authors who cover the NBA and WNBA for TA that I’d go ahead and subscribe. I definitely regret it now that they have wasted hours of my time and I STILL haven’t got what I paid for. Plus I missed all the free agency coverage that was a big part of what I wanted. I hope whoever owns The Athletic will take responsibility, apologize to me and clean this up so it never happens to anyone else
Die hard sports fans, get this now
If you’re a die hard sports fan this is what you need. Everything is click bait now with meaningless articles. I would read something from some pretty popular sports sites and think “I learned nothing and just wasted my time.” This is my first review I’ve written on any app or anything but I feel that passionate about The Athletic. If you’re constantly reading sports articles or reading fantasy info, this is what you need. The Athletic doesn’t care about clicks, or ad money. They care about writing quality sports articles that are informative, un-biased, and real. I’m addicted to the articles and as they grow it’ll only get better and better. After reading a few articles, you’ll start to see how garbage some of these sports sites are. Please keep it up and you’ll have my subscription for life.
