What do you guys think is better? I am subscribed to both. Just wondering what everyone's opinions are.

I also subscribe to both. I thought that when ESPN first came at it blew SI. away. But now I like SI. better. I think they have better writers and ESPN's NFL coverage blows.

I like ESPN cause you get a more graphical look, and its more humorous. But i think for writiing quality, SI is better. ESPN does have a way better site, though.

SI went downhill when the internet exploded in the lates 90s and there were 20 web sites doing what had been doing. ESPN was good when it first came out, but has slid back now that they're doing more entertainment and less sports.

I think SI is better overall with ESPN having a few things that distinguishes itself from SI.

I prefer what is inside ESPN the Mag, however, the size of it turns me off as it does not fit in a standard mag rack

Gotta give my vote to ESPN. It's one of the only mags that I can read from cover to cover. They seem to have more of a human interest spin on their stories.
