Great app!

New favorite sports app! This is a must-have if you’re a sports fan. Every article is professional written, but they are also an easy read. Even though the app is based around rumors, every article is cited with sources to that rumor, thus making everything on here credible. Also, I can exit out of the app and come back 10 minutes later and almost always have 1 to 5 new stories to read.

My only feedback is mostly based around the comments. I love having open discussions with the TradeRumors community on articles. But I do wish that there was the option to delete or edit comments, since sometimes you forget to fix grammar or a number/stat you miswrote. I also wish there was a way to be notified if someone replied to one of your comments. You guys are posting constantly (which is just awesome) but sometimes I post a comment and want to see if someone responds but then it gets lost from the wave of new articles or I forget about it. Also maybe having a way for users to flag comments for you guys to review/take down? I’ve only seen one comment that was extremely ignorant, but just thought it could be considered (since I’m just throwing out ideas). One final thought is maybe creating a way for each user to create a profile of some sort, even if it’s very basic. That way we can see what teams certain users/comments support, or even more background about who we are chatting with.

Again great app and website, appreciate all you do! Thanks for reading:)

Great App

Hi all. This is a great app, but much like baseball statistics, it’s appreciation is found in understanding what it can do, and what it does. It is not here to tell you what rumors are true, and which ones are not true, but rather to report the rumors, and let you sort it out. In that regard, it’s a really great resource for collecting what’s being said about baseball. However, if you assume that it only prints what is “true“, you will be disappointed. Also, if you let yourself get personally involved in the comments, you will entirely lose your focus on what the site is about. The site is not about you, the commentor. The site is About reporting baseball rumors. Whether you choose to believe them or not is your issue, but whether you choose to believe you are more important then the reported rumors is your own fault.

No better place for sports rumors

If you’re looking for a place to get all the sports rumors, this is the app for it. I’ve used the website since the early days when Tim Dierkes was working a full-time job while gathering baseball rumors on David Justice on the side. They’ve built a great site, and now app, that covers MLB, NBA, and Football. There’s a reason you’ll occasionally see players quoted as seeing info about themselves first through Trade Rumors. The app gathers all the rumors and information you need into one app.

Literally, if I see a headline posted on ESPN or another sports app/site, I’ll go to the Rumors app to actually read about it.
