I tend to like the side moments of sports, i call it sports portraits, but i would be really interested in hearing other names for it. Please pull no punches. Full "Portfolio Gallery" (http://roblipop.smugmug.com/Portfolio/Portfolio/16080764_nbw9Q)

The better term is 'Sportraits'.
But your composition on that Sportrait is lacking. Since you went and cut of her feet, might as well clean it up;

Sportraits is an area that I do not do well. Or, I should say, I just haven't focused on much. I think shots on the bench and in the basketball huddle on the sideline with coach etc are good shots.
Good job. I like the crop that Jim did.

Nice shot. I too like the side moments. I shoot horse shows, but sometimes it's what happens outside of the arena that really tells the story. http://www.madeyousmilephotography.com/Horse-Shows/Southern-Oaks-Oct-2010/Walk-Trot/IMG6128/1047954612_HjbuS-M-2.jpg

I agree about the sideline, non-action shots... always fun to capture the emotions on the sideline...here are some of mine:

You have some very nice shots in your galleries.

Thanks man! I like the ones you posted too. You shoot a lot of Lacrosse? Let me know if we can ever shoot together. You know how to get me.

I love sportraits. Sometimes they sell better than the action. I shoot with a long lens, so when the action gets close, your only option is a sportrait.
With the little ones, their antics are better than the action for some fun sportraits.
300mm at f2.8 can make a creamy sportrait

Nice ones, Mitch!
And sometimes, a simple "hey boys gather up for a quick photo" shot turns into a refreshing different take on a team picture:
