Anything Lyndsey Adler writes (Yankees beat writer), she’s the best writer on the site, Connor on The Jets is solid, Tim Britton a Mets beat writer is solid. I’ve given up on The Knicks and hockey…

 

Dane’s The Beast on The NFL Draft player guide is worth the price of admission alone, download it now.

 

they have almost no Tennis coverage which is weird.

 

The college sports coverage is solid. golf coverage has been getting better…

 

It is worth the money imho…

Thanks! Will be looking at Connor and Britton. The Knicks…like 20 years and counting that I feel their pulse…with a brief Linsanity spike…

If you like hockey, they do a great job covering it.

I wish they'd get an additional Jets writer. Connor is repetitive and still writes as if it's a newspaper. Nothing really meaty..No use of film or film review..

They were burning through cash. Now that the Times owns them it will be curious to see how the bundles work.

They haven't changed it yet but will you have to buy the times to get the sports coverage?  Hopefully not.

The Athletic.  Two words never used to describe "Pancakes" Becton.

Actually the opposite is true

A 6'7", 365 lbs man who can move like Becton is pretty much the definition of athletic

I think going into the draft they said he could stand under the rim, jump up and do a 360 dunk.  In other words, he wasn't moving at the start.  "Not too bad"

Be sure to check out Conner's podcast. Depending on the time of year, its usually every week or two.

We all see what we want to see.  Obviously, I'm a buffet table half full person.

Almost anything worth watching/reading is behind some sort of paywall.

Not to mention youre paying with attention (ads) or lack of privacy (your data up to and including location and browser data).  Most of the time both.

Probably the most eye-opening quote from the documentary “The Social Dilemma’….

”If you are getting something for free, then you are the product”

so true

I have a subscription and enjoy it. I like their Mets and Jets coverage, and they just changed the guy who covers the Islanders, last name is Kurz, and he's pretty decent.

I did this last year but decided to dump it after a few months.  Every week or so, my account kept getting logged out and reset as if it was a temporary one, forcing me to email them to get a temporary work around in order to be able to log back in.  This went on and on...they never fixed it, so I cancelled.

Too much hassle and, frankly, I don't miss it.

I’m a Flyers fan and the hockey stuff is good.
