I ended up going at 135mm a couple nights ago...made 5 shots wide. Unfortunately I was still fighting the ramp lights in the back ground so I took half the stitch and mirrored it. Can't tell except for the background...which I'm gonna try and mask out and maybe replace. This is proving to be difficult because I'm using GIMP right now and I can't find the tools I'm used to in Photoshop.

How did you end up lighting it? Looks a bit like the AC is in front of a hanger (which is a nice, soft light box look).

I think his exposure is OK at best. No faces are well exposed. He clearly knows nothing of the sport and his pics demonstrate that.

The hole not cropping because I get it right in camera pissed me off. He obviously doesn't understand that you shoot tight, crop tighter. And plus he was way to static, whenever I shoot soccer games I move between sides of the goal to get the action head on.

The static part was because he was making a video about stuff he doesn't know about
