Re: D800- my experience

Blue shadow is caused by bad white balance. In the field set the WB and do a test shot. If good then keep it. In partially shadow/sunlight AWB can be problematic.

I have used the D7100 and it is not really better nor equal in resolution. 36mp is not easily manageable for fast moving even w.tirpod. It takes time to master.

My e has not showed any inconsistencies for everyday use. If you got oof with static subjects I would investigate for reasons before jumping to any conclution. For sports generally a D7100 or Dx3,4 are better options but not needed unless that is where your priorities are.
