Don't discount the DA 55-300 just because of 1 opinion. It's an excellent lens and ideal for outdoor sport.

If you need a lens for indoor sport, or concerts where you need some reach, then look at the Tamron 70-200 2.8, Sigma 70-200 f2.8 or the Pentax 50-135 2.8. All these are well under 1,000.

I think that's a bit like tripods (sturdy, light, cheap), pick any two.

I just bought a Tamron AF 70-300 mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Di on Ebay - I don't have it yet, maybe in the next week or two, is that going any good for indoor sports?

Well, it's only f/4-5.6, so you won't get very fast shutter speeds without turning up ISO quite high, but for the price, sure it will be OK.

The Sigma version of the 70-300mm is a little better, imho. Quieter to AF, and less CA.
