I only comment on this because of Cinci's m.o.
Yes, of course... In this thread I guess we need to appreciate just how few times you've added extraneous tallies of Cleveland's pro-sports teams, mentions of its NBA team, or stats of its NEO population in demonstration of just how unimportant "one-way" rivalries are to you.

It's just keeping Cinci checked since I know how it works down there. Must say it was great to see the Cavs play on ABC; this along with the Saturday night ABC games is a great example of national exposure.

So why doesn't Cinci get national attention?

Obviously, you didn't do your homework...

On the computer you're using right now, the Cincinnati forum, alone, is able to connect you to a myriad of active links from national sources recognizing and/or awarding the city for everything from its sheer beauty, core urbanity, amazing renovation of OTR, sleek new streetcar, LGBT acceptance, prestigious fine dining, number of craft beers and breweries, good health, retailing and branding, population growth and job production, low COL, powerful F500 companies and port authority, movie shoots, cultural attractions and family amenities, pro and amateur sports, recreation and parks, universities and libraries, huge public festivals, aquarium, and zoo.

I guess your post underscores my confusion with the original posters proposed question.

It is simple to get information on Cinci and its attributes/features if one is interested.

If the OP is wondering why Cincinnati is not mentioned as often as Washington D.C. (nation's capital), NYC (largest city in US), or LA (largest West Coast city, 2nd largest in country) in the national press.. that's not hard to figure out.

If you look at other metro areas of similar size around the country, how many get a lot of national press or attention? None, really unless they have a sports team that makes headlines or perhaps a major weather event or crime. Bear in mind what the media reports these days is typically negative and it may be a blessing that Cincy is not receiving any attention by the main stream media. I certainly recall it during the riots in 2001 and Marge Schott was also giving the region a bad reputation. No news is good news the way I see it.

True, I don't think Chicago gets a lot of attention either except for crime, corruption and sports on occasion.

Yup. Blame the media focus on the negative in our society these days, not positive attributes of people or in this case, a region.

And the latest just came to mind. Pete Rose. All the main stream national media does is concentrate on the negative. Same with any metro area.
