  • Love this app!

    By Nisie53
    I, unfortunately, am out of state, currently. I get more information on my OH teams than anywhere else. The writing is brilliant! That is why I subscribed to the app; so glad I did!
  • ESPN who?

    By me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):):)
    This is hands down the best sports app with some of the best sports writers out there today. Just some classic, solid writing... no video analysis BS!
  • Refreshing

    By John Colegrove
    It’s so refreshing to read a complete and thorough article about my favorite teams.
  • Great Choice

    By GregEHill
    I am grateful to have stumbled in this app. The writing is quality; as evidenced by Seth Emerson who appears to have been granted more latitude and License than his previous gig. And the presentation, graphics and fonts are very pleasing and pleasant.
  • Easily worth the investment

    By PMT_Commenter
    Best sports content on the web for a fraction of the cost of a newspaper subscription
  • iWatch feature

  • Not Biased

    By that annoying lamo reviewer
    A place where you can read articles about sports that aren’t afraid to say bad things about the companies (MLB, NFL, NBA) because they don’t work for them.
  • Best hockey coverage in North America

    By Son of Metternich
    Too often sports writers are frustrated political columnists venting their spleen in the sports section, or snarky fan boys working out their own failed athletic careers in print. Not here. Very impressed by the caliber of writing, depth of insight, objectivity and love of the sport prevalent amongst the writers on this platform. As a Bruins fan, I’ve always been an admirer of Fluto’s honest coverage. Like all good teachers, he is an avid student of the game and thorough his learning is able to share the inner workings of the game with a genuine joy. I have benefited from reading James Myrtle’s take on the Toronto side and the great analysis offered up every day. No obscure geekiness or bitter bloggers - just bright people offering insight into a beautiful sport on a daily basis. More, please.
  • Sports are fun again!

    By TerryPlays
    Great reporting on sports with none of the “ESPN social commentary”.
