comment Tamron 18-200 mm vs Nikkor 18-200 mm lens
build quality is a big issue here. Nikon builds lenses that hold up to rougher handling than Tamron, which uses a lot more plastic and so can't handle the bumps and bruises of heavy usage as well. A list of stats rarely tells the entire story...

Did you shoot raw? Or Jpeg? You can work on an image a lot more enthusiastically in these situations in raw.

comment Budget Zoom/Telephoto Lens (Sports Photography)
FWIW, long telephoto, fast, and cheap: pick two. For what you want you're going to need at least 400mm (something like a Canon 100-400), and that's not a little more than $650, it's double that amount. So your expectations are not realistic.
