I would go with the dslr. They're far closer to being designed to handle sports - with the best available high iso performance and the best available shutter lag - than any of the other options.

If you don't like changing lenses, get a 18-200mm.

The problem with the superzoom is shutter lag and high iso performance, which can be a problem when you're trying to get pics of a kid playing soccer at the far end of the zoom...
