  1. Mitch as been doing some great work since he started with the Athletic. Totally worth a sub IMO.

    We're having an Ent-Moot to discuss it. We can't be too hasty.
  4. Mitch Sherman left ESPN for The Athletic. It's about time.

      @Enhance I thought the same thing. Decided to give it a year to see if it's worth it.

      @Enhance The draw would be the access to the plethora of talent that The Athletic has put together over the last couple of years. Sherman would be the main draw, but you'd also have access to Mandel, Feldman and Auerbach for CFB, among others for other sports. 

       

      That said, I am cheap, so I haven't subscribed yet.

    If they cops weren't being forthright in what they wanted to discuss (they usually won't be), then you definitely don't talk to them without a lawyer. We've already established that they were vague with the University, and I doubt they were any less vague with Mo and his lawyer.
  6. I'm curious what the OWH readership numbers are now that they paywall so much content. Essentially every article that pops up on twitter is SUBSCRIBER PLUS, and I'm essentially to the point of unfollowing them.

      Is the subscriber Plus cheaper than the paper subscription?  Because, you know, paper and delivery costs don't exist

      @huKSer Yes - I think the going rate for unlimited access to all their content online is like $10/month.

       

      @Saunders I think I'm picking up what you were getting at now. I think The Athletic and the OWH are incomparable from a business standpoint. The Athletic is purely an online experience and, although they try to place people in local markets, they're a national brand. The OWH still delivers newspapers to tons of people still and have a lot fixed costs associated with that including print, production, delivery, management, carriers, etc.

       

      I'm sure they also have a lot of advertisers that want to get in front of their audience. So, it's just different business models. But, like I said, their online subscriber program gets rid of ads almost entirely.

      Hmm, I swear I saw ads when I did the trial last year, and I was shocked. Maybe they fixed it. Still, the price is quite high for what it is.

    GUYS... I'm surprising my wife and taking her to dinner at this little restaurant tonight near where we are building our house (I usually boycott Valentine's Day). Can you please behave while mom and dad are gone? Thanks.

    True, and I think that it's causing some lines to be blurred, and alot of misinformation.
