I suppose I usually read Sports Illustrated's content from CNN's website, so that's why I chose them. I've never really read Sporting News.

For fantasy and real sports new and rumours you have to go to the Sporting News. Sports Illustrated is better for in depth piece but the "news" is so late that it doesn't qualify as news. TSN is also funnier.

I went with Sports Illustrated because they have better writers and are more entertaining generally. For more in depth analysis of players/teams, though, I like Sporting News. Sports Illustrated has always sucked at their preview specials and predictions.

S.I. is a little too much fluff for me. I'll take the Sporting News.
