    they're underexposed and no action going on...which is a turn off when taking pictures at a sporting event

    Either open the aperture, up the iso, or slow the shutter speed. The latter of the three would be your last ditch effort, because it can kill a good action shot. you want to shoot at prob 1/250th or faster. Also, you could shoot in raw and up the lighting in post-processing.

    Use a wider aperture, or a slower shutter speed, or a higher ISO.

    Those are the 3 things that control an exposure. There are 6 combination sof those settings that will give you a good excposure but only one of those 6 combinations is the right artistic exposure.

    A photographer named Bryan Peterson wrote an inexpensive but very popular book dedicated to that very notion: Understanding Exposure.

    The holy grail in sports photography is capturing sharply focused and properly exposed action where the athlete(s) have interesting facial expressions.

    if you have a sports mode on your camera, use that. sports is pretty much the only thing i don't use manual mode for. the sports feature works very well on my nikon, so it shouldn't be different with yours
