Worth it, or nah?

If I had no monthly recurring things, I'd prob go for it but every month my Amex bill comes and between NYT, ESPN+, Netflix, Showtime, and like 6 other things I'm already paying over $100/mo for media. Is it REALLY worth it? Anybody have both Athletic and ESPN+ and prefer one over the other?

I like it but probably won’t renew for pretty much the reasons you described

Athletic is worth it. Especially during the season. Could get ugly with Dexter this year.

I, too, am an Athletic supporter. They juggle a lot of balls with comfort and ease.

I pay for it and find it worth the money.

I prefer The Athletic...I actually canceled ESPN after I had them both for a while. But that is mostly because I only really follow baseball closely and prefer their baseball coverage.

I do the annual subscription so I don't have to mess with the monthly nonsense; it's cheaper that way too.

Mark Saxon came to my work a while back, and he was a nice chap. But that's not reason enough to pay for it (although I do pay for it).
