This name is not universal. You have to explain to a foreigner what it means.
It doesn't sound like a professional team like Manchester United, Liverpool,
FC Barcelona or Italy National. Its a name that doesn't represent the country.
I really hope we can open our minds.

For me azkal is really a mediocre name. reminds me of an abbreviation for asong kalye ...Why would the country's football team be coined similar to lowly a stray dog..?.
Are they not undermining reputation the many expat players as well as the" imported" coach that constitute the team..
If the players were jobless bystanders,out of school youths and other idle fellows then the name would be more fitting ...;-)

lol...how about the other National names? the arab football teams even the other asian countries....their names were unknown too right? u dont need to change your name JUST to fit yourself in the public....you better BE yourself have your own identity i prefer the name AZKALS because:
*it became the widely known identity of our football team
*catchy name among the pro/non-football fans
*international/locally accepted
*it creates a lot of locally based fan because the name is UNIVERSAL to them/us
*foreigners will learn simple new things about the Philippines (meaning if you explain it to them, then your creating a bond in which will give a good impression on yourself tama? AMEN~ :lol: )

******************
people tend to look at the bad impression of things just like this...askal = aso kalye LOL!! AHAHAH e kung na lang e panu naman kung sa boxer rin? ex. parang ganito lang yan e kung ang boxer ay pangalang The Executioner aba e mamatay tao na yun? The Pacman e..corny at old school na laro yun ah... tama diba? kaya wag kasi palaging tignan ang bad sides ng isang bagay dapat ang palaging tignan e yun GOOD side naman..yun lng 8)

Azkals is a VERY VERY GOOD name if you ask me, its unique walang katulad...sabay the fans loves it that is the most important. the media loves it the govt loves it...so yah i love it too... :heart: :lol: :peace:
