It is interesting that you mentioned about using single point. The other day I was watching one of the college bowl games, and the cameraman had a still photographer in the picture who was using a D3. I froze the picture to look at his settings and he was using single point. In the past I have also used single point, but I had been wondering if I would do a better job with one of the other settings. Now it looks like I was probably using the best setting all along.
