The sport world is bigger than the U.S. and american football, its called soccer
Ahem. Nowhere else than in the U.S. it is called soccer. The name of the game is "football". Pretty logical, as you play it with your feet... :)

logical except in US there they have a lot of protection and strange helmets and call it football, the original sport calls RUGBY from 1823 and are for real men and  they have no protection.

What's the difference between American football players running around looking confused with helmets on, and you sitting at your computer confused with a helmet on?

Here in Canada, we also call it Soccer.... so it's not just the U.S. that has the name wrong.... and I dare you to go tell the members of my NEICE'S rugby team that the game is for real men....

And the sport world is much larger than contact sports. Might I suggest you take up canoeing? A quiet lake, waterfowl and magnificent scenery..... sunsets and sunrises, an osprey or an eagle picking a fish off of the surface of the water, moose browsing in a marsh.... If there was ever a sport ideal for photographers, canoeing has to be it.

Man, do you EVER just STOP? Seriously..."RUGBY...are for real men"?!?!?

I honestly can't think of a more pitiful, pointless, and useless statement (especially on these forums!) Men who think along those lines are the type of men who have to prove they are men, as a result of being insecure about it in one way or another, rather than simply being comfortable with the fact that they ARE men. Football, Rugby, Soccer...doesn't matter what the game is...all just a bunch of insecure, testosterone-driven men without any willpower trying to prove to the world through macho, brain-damaging insanity that they aren't the pathetic, insecure men they really, actually are. (Well, either that, or a combination of raging insecurity and an unsatiable greed for fame and money...either way...same ultimate outcome.)

Pathetic...honestly...new low even for you... Sometimes you just need to admit defeat man, and move on.

I didnt mean to put sports down. Mainly anchorwhat?   But i could say a few things about how the state of sports has become.  Didnt a teenager recently kill an umpire with a single punch? Adults need to act like adults, whether they are coaches, umpires, parents of athletes or spectators, and set an example for younger people.Of course this could be said about adults in general, not just sports. Should have said people of the USA, not Americans. America, after all,encompasses North,South, & Central America. And Jrista, I believe the macho attitude is common in many men, not just in the sports world, though maybe more obvious in athletes & fans, and like you, believe it can sometimes be a sign of immaturity. Didnt mean to rant, or did I? I blame Awott for instigating this rant and detracting from the subject of photography. But it is all fun to me,not to be taken too seriously :)

Dammit, I came to this thread to read what people thought about this rumor and all I see is arguing about soccer and football and manliness. I must've forgot that I'm on the CR forums, where threads always go off-topic for a few pages.

I guess 7D owners can be happy about this rumor of no 7DII this year.

There is a common denominator among threads here that run amok...

And believe it or not it wasn't the U.S. that came up with the term it was.... Britain! They came up with the term "soccer" and now spend every waking minute blaming it on the U.S.  :'(.

Give a cheap violin to a violin master and they will still make beautiful sounds with it. Give a Stradivarious to a begginer and the reverse will happen. It's not the camera but the photographer's skill and talent...
I see so many invested photographers these days with all the pro kit and not a clue how to use it.

No it's:

Give a cheap violin to a Anne Sophie Mutter and she will still sound good.... but definitely not as fabulous and something will be missing a bit for sure.

If you were to steal a top violin player's instrument they would probably literally cry and then go all Taken on you: "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my Strad go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will...."

And there is a reason they would be like that.

Give a Strad or Guarn to a beginner and he might still not be terribly good but unless he is really, really poor or like in the first few weeks his tone may be a little better and if he is a skilled beginner he will sound noticeably better although he's not going to be able to sudden do anything a master can. I've personally tried crummy and excellent and I definitely sounded better with the top instrument, that said of course I didn't transform into Perlman.

For cameras give a sports pro a rebel and 70-300 IS and his take will instantly go considerable down.
Give a beginner a 1DX+ 300 2.8 and his take will instantly go up a good deal.
But the pro will still have the better overall take (unless he is a really crummy one and the beginner has mad talent).

A photojournalist is looking for a visual narrative in every photo. That takes time, thought, observation, timing, skill and a bit of luck.
Landscapers are looking for the best light, this takes time, thought, observation, timing...and getting one's ass out of bed at inhumane times of the day / night. 
Wildlife photographers are looking for perfect specimines doing interesting things with clear backgrounds. This takes time, thought, observation, timing and patience.
Sports....do I have to go on?
Natutrally there's a host of piccy grabbers who just pray and spray, picking out the successfull chance shots in post production....but that's not skill. Yes 12fps is helpful, but a lot of sports photographers I know still use 5 fps becuase they are good and judging the timing and don't want to fill their cards with time consuming throw aways.

My last wedding, I shot 1127 photographs. An all day shoot of 14 hours. Final edit...down to 537 photos. That's slightly under 50% keepers. A collegue of mine who is a pro football photographer has simular hit rates. A pro landscaper friend of mine has a keeper rate of well over 75%. This pray and spray behaviour supports my previous statement.

I'm still learning and my keeper rate is much lower than that. I wouldn't show even 5 percent of my shots. My reaction time is not fast enough to pick up the ideal wing position of small birds in flight so I have to rely on the camera burst mode. I like the idea of 10 (or more) fps in burst mode and lots of other bird photographers trying to keep up with those damn hummingbird wings seem to rely on the evil "spray and pray". Please tell me, how do I improve my reaction time by a factor of ten or more?
