I'm gonna ask this though, which option would be more useful in a longer run: either buying a new and more powerful and better lense first or buying a tripod(or monopod) first?I'd buy a lens first...

Shooting fast-moving subjects usually means a fast shutter speed, and that means a tripod/monopod is of less importance, unless you're shooting with a very long lens (>500mm). If your main interest was landscapes, I'd get the tripod first, but for action shooting I think a fast lens would be better. Agree that the 200/2.8L is an excellent value, or for closer subjects, the 100/2 or 85/1.8.
