Nikon 70-200mm2.8 Old or New?

I'm about to purchase one of these lenses. I can save $500 if I buy the old; however, since I'm a senior citizen, I'm tempted by the newer VR and extra stop. The question I have is this: Am I better off with the older version (less weight but one less stop) or the newer lens which is heavier but has the better VR? I currently use a D90 - will probably upgrade next year - and the 70-200 will be used primarily for "people" events. Advice, please!!
