>As many others have already said, the AF-S 70-300 mm f/4-5.6
>VR is the easy pick of a lens to get on a budget for sports,
>with nearly instant focusing and a reasonable size with VR.

Just to be sure there is no confusion - the 70-300mm Nikkor with VR has a maximum aperture of f/4.5-5.6, not f/4-5.6 like the earlier (and less capable) non-VR "D" and "G" screwdriver AF versions.
