fast tele zooms for sports/wildlife

I'm in the market for a fast tele zoom. I have been looking at all the brands, and it comes down to the sigma and nikon as the focus speed of the Tamron simply won't cut it for sports. Since I shoot a lot of hockey, basketball and others sports i need a fast lens. The nikon for me is out of my price range, and even used I feel like I'd be pushing it too much. The sigma seems perfect for me, except for the lack of corner sharpness. Will this lack of corner sharpness be at all an issue for sports or wildlife shooting? My other concern is how well the sigma will work with a 1.4x or greater teleconverter?

Any input is greatly appreciated!
