200-400 vr1 vs 300 vr1/vr2

So I keep seeing the 200-400, specifically the vr1, keeps getting ridiculed for it's performance. I am a teenage pro photographer, and am in search of a longer fast lens for sports. I have three possible lenses to buy, and they are listed in the poll. I have a pair of D4/S and a D810 at the moment until my Z9 arrives. Any advice on what lens to get? My budget is 2k max. I have seen that Keh has ugly 300 2.8 vr2s starting at 1800, and I have one allocated at mpb for 1850 (but it is missing the collar and the foot). I have seen some 300 vr1s go in the 1500-1800 range, and then of course the 200-400. Any tips?
