It cracks me up how people don't get The Athletic:

Sports fans want to read about sports. Newspapers stopped covering sports. Sports fans are willing to pay. Everyone is like "The Athletic is no different from a newspaper!" But it is, in that they're covering things like hockey and not just running wire copy and national stories.

I don't know to what extent their revenue model works but the content is great.
