Yup... never met a sports pro who shoots RAW. Too many files, too tight deadlines.
I shoot motorsports for a couple of teams and their sponsors. I never know when they want a frame blown up to 3 x 2 meters or more. Then I need all the details I can get and the flexibility that only a RAW file can give me, particularly when the lighting is difficult, and late in the day, it is. While many, possibly most, sports pros shoot jpeg, I've met several who shoot RAW + jpeg or RAW only.
With motorsports, I run into the buffer limit often, particularly when accidents happen or at the start, even with the D2Xs in crop mode. But it happens in most kinds of action sports. I shot Polo a few weeks ago, and that was even worse, since one never knows how long a dramatic situation will last.
