Fort Worth also has no pro sports teams, and although there are some well-known companies in Fort Worth, none really have an instant tie to Fort Worth, like say Neiman Marcus in Dallas (and I think NM is now owned by a FW company) or Starbucks in Seattle. American Airlines is based in Fort Worth and it's name is on an arena in DALLAS. And not to mention Dallas has one of the most recognizable and beautiful skylines in the country.
Lol, if you say so. I have been to other cities, like NYC, and tell them I am from Fort Worth. I never have had a problem with the recognition of our city. Some have even added that they never cared much for Dallas, but they enjoyed the rest of DFW. Many outsiders view Dallas as pretentious, with a generic city personality.

Well lets see, the public transportation sucks, freaking buses stop running at 10PM, and they don't go into our suburbs, hell they don't even go to all parts of our city. fort worth is a major city that runs the bus service like we are a small town. the only trains we have are the ones that go to dallas. other cities I have been to you can close out the bar and ride the bus/train home.

I expect that by then, there will be more marketing on the FW side. Chi, LA Have two baseball teams. LA has two bball teams. FW will have more name recognition by then nationwide.

Another sad thing is Arlington is looked at as a suburb. It's a city in the middle of two large cities. It has more people than tampa, cincinatti, stl, buffalo but its looked at as a burb.
And unlike those cities Arlington refuses to have public transportation.

After spending a couple of weeks in both cities, my take is they are more akin to Beavis and Butthead.

The easiest way to deal with this issue of "being overshadowed" is to merge FW into Dallas-Fort Worth, creating the greatest metropolis on earth.

Nope. Nope. Hell to the no. I was born in Dallas and grew up there. Even though I live inFort Worth now, I still love Dallas. I think this is a terrible idea.
