I have this lens and I love it. I like the look of these. I wish this game had been on cable last night.

It was only a webcast. So disappointing that US soccer is so hard to find televised.

It's been 22 hours without comment so here goes:
#1 looks soft
#2 I'm curious why the feet look blurrier than faces. Is this the entire image or cropped. Is the lens soft in the corners?
#3 While interesting that you have an apparent goal, this is a missed shot. Focus is on the #6 player who has taken a tumble. Who took the shot? What's the story? Everyone is a spectator.
#4 is a bit of a blurry mess. While this one shows physical interaction it is not all that good. Shutter should have been faster, is this about 1/500 or 1/640?
Except for #2 the rest have a bit of a green hue

Hi Joel, have to agree with ChunkyDa, these aren't your best. I saw highlights on TV, looks like the photogs were kept quite aways back and behind some rather tall advertising structures. Probably was harder to get good angles.

It was a good game, the South Koreans came to play and the Canadians were napping for a good part of the first half but their keeper kept them in the game. The score was 3-0 for the Canadians but it sure did not reflect the play on the field.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I must admit it was not my best outing and I think I made a mistake in opting for reach over a faster lens (brought the 100-300/4 vs the 70-200/2.8). Shutter was around 1/640-1/800 and I had the ISO cranked on the 7D. I must be in summer mode still, expecting some daylight at 7pm now is quite foolish. :)

I'm wondering if the green hue you are seeing is the reflection of the stadium lights off the turf.

Accessibility wasn't an issue, I think it was actually better behind the goal lines as the last game I shot in the spring at Commonwealth. Lots more photogs in attendance, though.
