Isn't that just common sense .. not just photography. The more you know , Better the results.
You'd think so...but we're living in a day of instant satisifaction - people don't want to take the time to do anything right, just get it done. I noticed this working in music to, bands didn't care about promoting and releasing a CD when it's right, they just wanted it out! It's definately not just photography related.

What if they practice outdoors in a field but play indoors in a stadium?
Most teams DO have an initial warmup session...you can test some things there. And you can always go to the practice outdoors to learn the sport and then shoot the game indoors and arrive early to learn what settings you need for that light

I have also found it advantageous to meet with site management when you arrive early. Introducing yourself will make an impression on them. I've only shot a few places and have introduced myself to site management everytime. Not only did they remember me the next time, I got a free pizza out of the deal. I'm not saying go around and kiss butt, but a firm handshake goes a long way. Oh, I second pretty much everything that Mike (MJPhots24) says about sports.
I prefer to walk in and announce my presence with authority, I'm Mike Janes B***H!! After getting up off the sidewalk when security throws me out, it's a good idea to go introduce yourself more politely. New places usually go talk to the media guy quick and get going on what ya need to do (AD's, coaches, etc. for high school and other leagues). Just act professional and everything goes smooth...it's very easy to tell who's studied up and who hasn't usually.

we could start a Mike Janes fan club!! Serioulsy, he does know what he's talking about as do many here. It truly is a great place for help.
On another note, GO BUCS!!!!!! LSU goes down and a big win by Mizzou and we are that much closer. Still, unless we step it up from the last few games, it may not end as well as we'd like.
Only fan club where I have to pay members to join. My buddy out here (a local sports writer) has a fan club, it's kind of weird and funny all at once.
College ball? I haven't followed college since playing it...more pros and only sparingly for me. Speaking of, maybe Da Bears should just snap the ball to Hester the rest of the game :P

This has turned into a Mike Janes love fest. I know Mike, he's a good guy.
Personally, I think he's kinda a jerk! Oh yea, and I have a life - it's just in hibernation until spring training starts again. It'll awake in February, do some stretches, and head on a plane down to FL (or Arizona).
