Is there a way to shoot aperture priority (where you select the aperture and the camera selects the shutter speed) on a W1?
Maybe I'm missing something, but I've been through the manual and don't see it and before I give up I thought I would ask. And yes, I do see how in M mode you can select both the aperture and the shutter speed and the EV tells you if you're off. That seems very cumbersome.
Thanks for your help and I hope this isn't a stupid question; but I did a forum search and didn't see anything.

That depends on the sport, the location, and what you want the pictures to say to the viewer. You won't necessarily shoot a daytime football game outdoors the same way as a basketball game indoors.
In general you're going to want a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. To get the fastest shutter speed possible, use the Aperture Priority mode by turning the mode dial to "A" then select the largest aperture by using cursor-up/down to get the smallest f/number.
Having said that, sometimes you might want a slower shutter speed to convey a sense of motion. Select Shutter Priority by turning the mode dial to "S" and use cursor-up/down to select the desired shutter speed.
The question in the title and the first sentence imply to me that you have confused manual mode and RAW format.
Title: "Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAWD freeze when shooting in RAW"
First sentence: "My brand new Canon 6D freezes when I try to shoot in manual."
Manual mode means you are responsible for all of the settings related to exposure (aperture, ISO, and shutterspeed). RAW is a specific file format to save the photo. They are independent of each other.
My guess is that in manual mode you have the shutterspeed set to the maximum of 30 seconds. The camera isn't going to automatically adjust it for you in manual mode. If you're new to DSLRs, start with Ae (Aperture priority) or Tv (Shutter priority). In Ae mode, you control the aperture and the camera will select the shutterspeed. In Tv mode, you select the shutterspeed and the camera selects the aperture for you. Start off with Auto ISO. This will help you learn what combinations of settings work well together.
This is one of the biggest drawbacks of a point&shoot camera. You're expected to point the camera and shoot the picture without worrying about minor details like aperture and shutter speed. You can select the ISO by pressing the FUNC/SET button in the shooting mode and then selecting ISO (third item from the top along the left edge of the screen). You can control the aperture and shutter speed somewhat by changing the scene mode. For example, the portrait mode will try to give you a wide aperture, the landscape mode will try to give you a small aperture, and the sports mode will try to give you a fast shutter speed. If you want to take your photography above and beyond the point&shoot level then you need a more capable camera.
To blur the background, you need a shallow depth of field, which requires a small aperture.
Select Aperture priority by moving the mode select dial to A Press the +/- button, the shutter speed and aperture are displayed press the selector up/down to select the aperture press the +/- button to exit shooting mode
IF the selected aperture is outside the shooting range of the camera, shutter speed will show ---
In Program AE, press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed/aperture combination.
In Aperture Priority AE you can control the shutter speed indirectly. Press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the aperture, and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.
In Shutter Priority AE press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. The camera will adjust the aperture to suit.
In Manual press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. You'll have to press left/right on the 4-way button to select the appropriate aperture.
s I understand it from what I have seen on the Web, the 3000Z can operate in several modes:
1. Fully automatic (camera select both
2. Manual (user sets both aperture and shutter speed).
3. Aperture Priority mode - user sets aperture and camera chooses correct shutter speed to get a good exposure
Apparently there is no Shutter Priority mode (user cannot set only the shutter er speed and allow the camera to set the aperature to get a good exposure). This option is available on the Epson 850Z camera and this seems like a silly ommision to make on a "high-end" camera like the 3000Z.
