Really good input here.  Sounds like I wouldn't miss a beat.  One concern I'm getting from this is to gain reach, I'm going variable aperture.  That's not going to be good for speed when trying to reach across the lacrosse field and catch my son taking a shot.  This hobby keeps getting more and more expensive!  Thanks again Craig.

I'm going to jump in here not to provide opinion on glass, but about positioning for your son's lacrosse game.  I shoot HS sports, and in soccer, I move around the sidelines to capture shots of the players from different angles.  There is no one position that is the "best".  Have you tried positioning yourself behind the goal line (?) in lacrosse?  In this location, you can catch your son coming towards the goal, rather than speeding across the field and your camera.  In this location, you have a better chance of getting a sharp photo because there is less side to side motion of the player, and you will definitely see the facial emotion of his shot as he is coming towards you.

Expensive?  Wait until you start toying with 300mm and 400mm f2.8 lens.
