Re: 70-200 f4 or 70-200 f2.8

I can't think of any advantage that the f4 lens gives you in that situation.  Low-light sports is one of the more demanding scenarios, and sometimes even f2.8 doesn't offer enough light-gathering capability.  Go for the 70-200 f2.8G VRII.  If that is too much money, get a used 70-200 f2.8G VRI, or one of the 80-200 f2.8 versions.
