    I've always said that American Football was a girl's game.

    Still probably less crying than in European football ;)

    ....And the netting made it nearly impossible (for my skills) to get action shots...(However in retrospect, perhaps I should have gone with manual focusing)....

    The netting definitely adds an interesting effect - looks like a game worth watching. :cool:

    Indeed! And who says women's sports isn't as interesting as men's? :biggrin:

    Yep, sports netting can be a real nusiance, looks like you've coped with it reasonably well. Manual focus & wide apertures are definitly the way to go.
    It severly limits location for motorsports photography. The back of the pits at Brands Hatch is really close to the circuit -but when I've tried even right up against the netting it spoils the shot (I can't pan with the lens touching the netting - and the posts tend to get in the way too!)
