  1. 1. Rupert Murdoch, at the Annual General Meeting of News Corporation in1996: “Sports absolutely overpowers film and all other forms of entertainment in drawing viewers to television.

Y me remito a las pruebas, las tiradas se deciden cuando acaban los partidos. Lanzamos más o menos ejemplares en función del resultado. SANTI NOLLA (director Mundo Deportivo). El nuestro es un culé reflexivo. Si el catalán se mueve entre el seny i la rauxa—sentido común y arrebato—, el lector del Mundo Deportivo estaría más bien en el seny. Y es verdad, las tiradas fluctúan en unos 25.000 ejemplares en función de la victoria, el empate o la derrota. Marca - 26/06/2011 Sports branding Introduction
