Player scores touchdown, video guy runs out with a Steadicam body suit within .5 seconds of the play and blocks all of us photographers.

->> I don't believe that how most sports photographers would want to cover an event ... most like a little perspective. If you don't know where to go/stand then get in front of everyone with a super-wide lens...works for TV

->> I knew a photographer quite a few years ago who was notorious for getting between the group and the subject because he had a 24mm lens and damn it, he was going to use it!

He strolled into an event one day and declared, "I just got the new 18mm lens!" and loud moans were heard from everyone else in the room.

Funny now, not so much at the time.

->> There's a shooter around here whose only wide angle is a 15mm. He's a nice guy and generally polite and considerate but when his only wide lens is a fisheye, there are bound to be some problems. I think the old saying applies here: "When your only tool is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail."
