Today's questions
Shooting sports

I am a hobbyist shooter looking for a lens that takes acceptable pictures for night sports, mainly football. I am using the basic canon 70-300mm F4-5.6 zoom lens on a rebel xti. Unfortunately, even at the highest ISO setting, I cannot get acceptable pictures. I am convinced I need a new lens, but I am not sure what to look for. I am a student and do not have loads of dispensable income for a new lens so I would like to keep it under $400. Any suggestions for a lens or shooting techniques to make my pictures acceptable? Thanks? Jordan in Kentucky
