You lose decent AF, trip over a stone and loose a tooth. ;)

I just bought this lens 2 days ago and I'm very impressed so far. I normally shoot portraits, but took hat I could get and shot my daughter's soccer game. Cloudy day due to storms rolling in.

Looking at your photos you had it in AV I'm assuming with it set to F8 and ISO 200 and you let the shutter adjust as needed.

Is there any reason why? at F8 this lens is softer then it is at F4. You have a 1/8000 capable shutter so why not stick to 3.2 to give a better background blur subject isolation.

I could understand if you wanted alot in focus. But at F8 it doesn't really give anything about the Tamron's tracking capability. Too much in focus. Next time go out and shoot at 2.8-3.2 and see if it has any tracking issues.

I want to try the entire range on the lens, not just wide open, or almost WO. Wasn't in it to just have one person in focus, as I would in normal portraits

Depending on what he shoots i have to disagree. As long as he doesnt need it for fast action, the center point of the 6D is very capable! And i dont want to talk about low light performance ;)

At f2.8 200mm with a subject distance of 100 feet, your depth of focus is 8 feet which is plenty to get a group of kids in focus. When I shoot sports, I want to isolate the subject. If you have everything in focus, it's just information overload and makes the photo less interesting. Using f8 here with that framing gives you the background spectators, parking lot, pavilion buildings, neighboring farm houses all in focus. Unless you wanted the farm houses in focus too, I would have used 2.8-4.0.
