Recommend me a cheap (~$500), fast and sharp telephoto for sports photography

if you saw my last thread, i have been having issues getting the sharpness i desire on my Nikkor 70-300 for action surf photography.

i am not necessarily going to jump ship from it, but if i can significantly increase sharpness with new glass and it fits my minuscule budget, i just might do it.

in a perfect world i'd have the funds for the 70-200 but i have been reading that the 80-200 f/2.8 AF-S is a pretty sharp lens that i might be able to find.

any thoughts? any other glass i should at least investigate?

thanks!
