Sit as close to the game as you can possibly be.  If you can sit on the ground on the sideline, do that.  If you are closer, you can use a shorter mm lens setting, so you can use a less expensive and/or wider aperture lens.  It can also mean a less-fast shutter to counter camera shake (though subject movement will still be an issue).  It will also mean you can crop the photo less, which improves IQ too.  It may also mean you can avoid the ugly part (the longest part) of a lens like the 70-300mm, and use the sweet spot instead.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?
