For football fans, repping their team's logo is a crucial part of showing support, so when Aston Villa's underwhelming new design was recently leaked, it's safe to say there was a mixed response. Some football badge designs are certainly worthy of a place on the best sports logos list but with such a strong backlash, Villa's potential new design doesn't seem to have reached the same heights. 

While the key elements of the football club's crest design are still going strong, the new logo has a certain underwhelming feel that fans have compared to a "Microsoft Paint job."  With the club's previous logo only lasting a year, this controversial new crest could be over before it has even begun.
