G9 sporting fail for me at least

Hi generally I'm very happy with my G9.

Great for getting shots of the dogs and kids running around. Today however I tried shooting a Rugby match, I was trying to get good shots of one particular player. I tried tracking but as the players were all wearing the same kit it jumped from one to the other, I tried Human detect with the centre area selected, same thing happened. I have the C1 C2 C3 set to different advanced AF ,that wouldn't cut it either. In the end I thought stuff it and went to ordinary focus with a smallish area selected, then I started getting more keepers. So it seems to me these fancy AF modes are great as long as there are only one subject or perhaps totally unlike subjects. Or am I missing something.

Thanks

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.
