For fast moving sports, do you prefer 9, 21 or 51 points? I often find focus is not on the point I selected, but elsewhere.

I was wondering the same thing.  Also, I have missed several important shots not being in focus on my moving sports subject.

For a pretty detailed discussion of all the settings (including AF-ON and number of focus points) that affect focus performance on the D300 (and similarly for other high-end Nikon dSLRs), see this article: http://johnfriend.blogspot.com/2009/10/nikon-d300-auto-focus-for-sports-i.html
