The gift feature gives you 20% off a 1yr subscription, which comes out to $47.99, so I don’t think it was that unless you got an added student discount on top of that. 

 

No, i think they were offering additional discount for Black Friday

I miss the days of real newspapers. It was a lot more fun reading a paper while taking a dump than a small phone screen. And you didn't get distracted by porn either!

Damm could have saved $10.  

 

I ordered it for the $25 price couple weeks back.  My take on it is, has many well written articles, if you're looking for an overall good sports "magazine" it's well worth it.  But as far as much localized Bills coverage, sorry for the haters, but the BN far exceeds at least in quantity.  For the price I paid a good deal, thought I saw the full price is over $100 a year which is what I'd assume I'd pay next year to renew.  Well that ain't happening at that price.  If they offered me $50 for the year, likely would do it, but not higher unless things change. 

 

The Blitz at $36 a year is still a good deal for quite a bit of Bills coverage IMO.

 

And to the people who state "I refuse to pay for online content"  so did you steal newspapers all your life?

Yep.     Get paid through ads like everyone else          

 

News papers have ads but you still pay for it too.

That is very true and TBD shows me that pretty often as so many articles in the News section are from The Blitz and Im forced to change IP Addresses to read the ones I want. I'll likely stop being cheap and just pay for it soon. The Athletic has been worth it so far and I'm sure I'll more than get my money's worth during the season.

The slow trickle of articles in the "down time" between the draft and training camps is a real thing at The Athletic. 

Once training camp starts, there are daily articles. Once the season starts, then it's REALLY worth the price.

Admittedly, though, there's not much new content on there between May 1st and July 27th.

Signed up and read three articles: Josh Allen, The Athletics 1 yrs anniversary, and Frank Reich's journey.

 

All excellently written, and if I don't read another piece, I will still not be unsatisfied. 

 

Glad this opportunity came. Worth the price of admission, to me. WTF else am I gonna read? Mike F'n Florio?

 

 

I have a sneaking suspicion those weren’t $8 articles

I signed up when this thread started............I thought it would be like a smaller version of the News' sports section.  It's not even close to that.

You are paying $2.99 per month to have Jerry Sullivan NOT have articles in it (sounds like blackmail) if he has not found way to write for them either with his own name or using an alias.

 

Now regarding Atlantic are there historical articles as well?

They do have Timmah though.  I gave it a try... while there do seem to be a few good articles, I haven't been particularly impressed with the quantity.  I'll be curious to see what comes out during the season.

If it wasn't for his twitter behavior, I think I'd like him.  He's not the asshat in print that Sully & Bucky were.

Agree because he actually could be a good writer, something especially Sully couldn't and still can't do.

Not a good idea to keep cutting the price when I already renewed at a higher rate.

Really go for the pièce de résistance.  Next time you’re in there for your ‘morning constitutional’, yell out “Hey, phone call for you!”

Got the email for this the other day and wanted to share it on this thread, but couldn't find it.  Was finally at a price point where I thought I would give it a try.  So far so good!

Plus it's a lot harder to accidentally drop the newspaper in the toilet. For me at least.
