It's not that hard to be consistent. Best of luck to them.
Yep, you're right. The older heads actually running the club should know better. Anyway, I messaged them about this and this is what I had to say:

Hi Guys,

I just found out about your existence after recently hearing Paul Gallon mention you in a press conference (who is the Assistant Coach apparently). I had to look you up and I'm loving everything about it including the merchandise. I'll be definitely getting one of those awesome jerseys in the not too distant future. I do, however, have a couple of criticisms which I must mention. Namely, the Prespa Agreement between Greece and "North" Macedonia does not obligate Australia to fall into line with the terms of agreement between these two countries. You are representing the whole of the Macedonian community in this country with this team and not just the Macedonians from the Republic. Please remove any mention of the prefix "North" from your website. It's unnecessary and does not need to be volunteered as a naming convention for the Republic of Macedonia. "Macedonia" would be sufficient to describe the origins of the team players. The other criticism I had was with your usage of the ventilator flag on Uncle Sam's hat as depicted on your Home Page. Again, there is no need to include this in any form or combination on your website. That flag was forced on Macedonians in the Republic. No one is forcing it on us here in Australia so please remove it from your website.
I'll keep you posted on any replies that I get back.
