Am I the only one who thinks theathletic.com isn't a viable business model? $8/month for written local sports content (or $60/year). Just don't see the market for this at all. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/23/sports/the-athletic-newspapers.html In their Chicago section they took Jon Greenberg from ESPN Chicago who I never thought was that good, Dan Durkin who was writing for 670's website, Kevin Fishbain from Pro Football Weekly and Dan Pompei from the Tribune. Those are the only names I recognize. So much for bleeding the newspaper dry. Doesn't mean 100,000 people are willing to pay a premium for written content on local sports. Why would I pay for White Sox content when I can just go to South Side Sox? Or Fangraphs will write a piece on a specific club if they find a topic to write about.
