"RE: Where do you find things like the technical guide"

I shoot a lot of soccer and as the player's got bigger and faster I found that the percentage of in-focus shots in a motor-drive sequence gradually got fewer and fewer - especially when the subjects were running directly at me or away from me. This was especially true when the target - player's or ball I was focusing on - didn't take up much of the frame.

I think the biggest problem is you need to fill more of the frame with what you're shooting --- it's easy to move the camera enough during a burst to get it off the target.
