I am trying to figure out this unsharp mask thing. Does anyone have any advice on what settings work best for football photos. typical shots are from sidelines or endzone with a 70-200 lens.

thanks!

try these settings and see what you think:

threshold = 3
Radius = 0.7
Amount = 150

This is what I've been using to sharpen football shots for awhile. Not overcooked at all. Just cleans 'em up nicely. Example:
