What lens is good for Canon Rebel XT when it comes to action photography?

I would like something on the cheaper side that does the job. Thanks a lot!

Sigma makes a 55-200 which would get you into the tele-zoom world without breaking the bank. http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-55-200mm-Telephoto-Digital-Cameras/dp/B0001VQ12Y Try this out and if you want a better one later, you won't be out much $$$. Hope this helps.
