Some of our overseas Kankas may not know just how well the Turkish press covers sport in Turkey. We live in a football mad country and so it is only right that the sports pages of a newspaper are many, with football dominating them.
Just to give one example. Today's Haber Turk newspaper had a 12-page broadsheet sports section. A page is approximately 48x34 centimetres, giving the sports section a total area of 19,584 square centimetres.
The paper obviously decided to lead with last night's Turkish Cup quarter-final matches (two were played).
For the Gaziantepspor - Galatasaray match the paper published 13 photos, 13 articles and two long analysis pieces. All up it devoted 3,912 square centimetres to the match.
A pretty good effort considering that the match finished pretty close to the publishing deadline.
For the Genclerbirligi - Bucaspor match which finished two hours before the other quarter-final, the paper devoted a generous 80 (eighty) square centimetres. Even then this was merely a list of the players; no photos, analysis, not even a single sentence on what happened.
