Founder was quoted in the nyt saying something like they’ll wait out all the sports sections to fail and gobble up all the good writers or something.

By the time you finish reading this article, the upstart sports news outlet called The Athletic probably will have hired another well known sportswriter from your local newspaper. In a couple of years, once The Athletic has completed its breakneck expansion, perhaps that newspaper’s sports section will no longer exist.

“We will wait every local paper out and let them continuously bleed until we are the last ones standing,” Alex Mather, a co-founder of The Athletic, said in an interview in San Francisco. “We will suck them dry of their best talent at every moment. We will make business extremely difficult for them.”

Haven’t really messed with the ESPN app before — the little recap videos and pages personalized to your teams are great

yeah it's great -- there are these narrated two-minute clips of the team's last game, and a bunch of 30-second highlight packages. it also loads the scores much more quickly than the NFL app does

Always wonder if the anonymous amounts are generous or cheap.
Drunk and stupid is no way to be remembered but it is an easy way to forget.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.
