The 135L is one of my most used sports lenses for indoor sports. I would think it might be a bit limited for football, since it is a little sport. Someone mentioned a comparison with the 85 f/1.8. I've used these two lenses extensively shooting volleyball, and the 135L far outperforms the 85 in AF speed for me. I often want to use the 85 focal length, but shoot tighter with the 135L because I get more keepers. I have shot them both on 1D3 and 50D for the last couple of years. On the crop body, the 135L is a good length for over the net shots too. I use the 200L for that on the 1D3, but on crop body you'd be about the same with the 135L. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this lens. It is quite versatile, and handles TCs very well too.
