Dallas has the name recognition and is more famous. Having the NFL team(which is still named after Dallas)and the baseball team in Arlington doesn't mean anything. Don't forget that Dallas has an NBA and NHL team in town in a beautiful state of the art new facility. All Fort Worth has is minor league teams. Fort Worth is just annexing land to get bigger and that isn't going to cut it. The suburbs around Fort Worth need to find a way to landlock that city. Also, Dallas has already surpassed 1.3 million, up from 1.1 million in 2000. Dallas also has the skyline, the businesses and many other top guns in the Metroplex. When Amos Carter created Texas' first TV station in 1948(KXAS)and refused to allow Dallas to see it, Dallas just went and created its own(WFAA)and eventually KDFW followed and they are both still prominent fixtures of Downtown Dallas and are two of the top TV stations in the country. Don't forget the nationally famous Dallas Morning News. Look at all of the corportations and infrastructure in Dallas too, the schools. You name it.

I can see you are very very concerned, but with much regret, I must inform you that it is to late. In anticipation of Fort Worth's inevitable rise in population, stature, and importance, the region has now officially been renamed FWD, Ft Worth/Dallas metroplex. DFW Airport is implementing the change January one 2011, the new airport code will be FWD. The Cowboys will break in the change from "Dallas Cowboys" to "Dallas/Fort Worth Cowboys" and then finally "Fort Worth Cowboys", makes sense doesnt it. And there is rumor that a new site has been secured between downtown Ft Worth and the Stockyards for the next Cowboys stadium, Jerrys already lobbying for the 2036 Superbowl in Cowtown. It may not even stop there, demographers predict that by 2050 the area will simply be know as; the Fort Worth Metroplex.
Sorry to break it to you....

You made a thread to rant about how you think Dallas will get out shined by Fort Worth..?!

Dude you're taking this way to seriously, Dallas's popularity won't ever be matched by Fort Worth. Don't stress these things, Fort Worth can't pass Dallas this decade or next even if it wanted too.

Go to sleep easy knowing Dallas is 600,000 people larger.

I would just ignore the OP. He made an even harsher post on the Dallas forum, which thankfully hasn't been commented on.

To the OP, Dallas wouldn't be what it is without Fort Worth. It is a symbiotic relationship, contentious at times but absolutely necessary for the continued growth of the region. And, sorry to break it to you but Forth Worth will eventually surpass Dallas in population. They have lots of room to grow and we don't.

To Fort Worth, I am not one of the insecure Dallasites. I love Fort Worth but I love Dallas more.

Dallas has some land. Dallas is also a big city by itself, even without Fort Worth. It is nearly the size of Houston and is larger than Boston, Seattle, Miami, Detroit, San Francisco. It is the ninth largest city in the country. Fort Worth just wants to surpass Dallas and make it a suburb. Dallas won't tolerate it at all.

Well whatever his name was. He represents Fort Worth and its residents to a tee, even today.

Dallas is not "nearly" the size of Houston!
