I think a lot of people are having to use Game mode for sports, but I'm starting to believe that (much like the color settings) each tv is different and you should play around a bit to see what's best for your own set. I've been using Standard mode no motion enhancement and have zero problems with motion blur for sports and no perceptable SOE on anything else. Damn I love this TV!
