Changes to sports logos can provoke strong sentiments among fans. For every success like the new New York Jets logo, there's logo redesign that prompts ire in the stands. The jury's still out, but it seems the new Arsenal logo might fall into that latter category.

It appears the Premiere League club is planning to adopt a radical minimalist logo design to replace the crest on its main shirts for the next season. The design, which is currently in use on the club's third shirt, features only the traditional canon from the club emblem without the shield and wordmark. While some fans like the simplicity of the new look, others argue that it renders the club crest meaningless. And people have some things to say about the shirt design too.
