My point being, shooting wide open be it MF or 35 will be blurry/grainy, even the fastest Leica lenses will do so. A narrow DOF has it's place but not where there is action. It is best suited for the studio or art shots.
This is purely a style choice, I'm a "2.8 and be there" type shooter myself. This is easy and fast with the F100 or N90s in AF and very doable even with my FM2.

It does take some practice but I shot my daughter's sports this way for years. I shoot ski racing on occasion and rarely stop down further than f/4.
