    Just curious,

    What typical color temps. and WB's do you find in most indoor football
    stadiums? How about typical ISO's. I know this all depends on what lens
    one is using but say for ......400 f2.8 and a 24-70 f2.8? I'm thinking of
    shooting some indoor motorcycle action.

    Color temperature from gas discharge lighting is problematical, as the
    spectrum emitted by such lamps is discontinuous, i.e. there are some
    wavelengths or colors which are not, or only partially, emitted. You
    can achieve a generally acceptable balance, but certain colors will be
    wrongly rendered, and you just have to live with it.

    If you set a custom white balance on your camera for the situation, you
    should be ok.
