Question about Canon Rebel Cameras
I don't think there will be an incompatibility issue. If your other lens(es) work well, your camera must be ok. But not only dirty contacts can cause trouble. If a very small dent is in one of the contacts of the camera, or one of the contacts from the lens is a bit to far pressed in, you also have a bad or not existing contact with the same error.
In the lens also something can be wrong. I strongly suggest to try the lens on an other camera and see what that brings.If the error goos with the lens to the other camera, you know where to look. But I think only professionals can repair you lens if it is defect.

For sports (or any fast moving occasion) you must be very particular about your settings. The Rebel Xsi takes great shots, but some tweaking needs to be done on your end, to make sure you don't get the "blur" and low quality that you may be experiencing.
On the settings dial, turn the mode wheel to "Tv". This is shutter priority, meaning you are controlling how fast the "shutter" closes. You need to have it set higher because you are trying to "freeze" a fast moving object.
After setting the selector to "Tv", you can change the speed by moving the "control wheel" left and right. (It's located above the ISO button, below the shutter button". If you look at your LCD screen while turning the wheel to the right (it makes a clicky sound), you will see the speed increase.
By default, it is set at 1/125th of a second. Increase it (1/200th of a second for example) and try that setting. You should freeze your target without blur.
If you are indoors and need a flash, the speed will max out at 1/200th of a second. Of course, if you need the flash, you will manually have to pop it up yourself by pressing the flash button when in "Tv" mode. It has a "lightning bolt" and is located near the "EOS" sticker on the front.
Hopefully this helps you. Let me know!

Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.

If you are sure that Sigma DL 75-300 mm zoom lens is fine and have tested on another camera then firmware update of Rebel 2Ti might fix its issue.
Required firmware update is available, click at Canon Support link and click on EOS Rebel T2i Firmware Update Version 1.0.8 to download it.
CAUTION: Follow Canon instructions strictly that you will see at download page to avoid any damage to camera during firmware update.
Hope these info will help you.

Problem is either the well known firmware bug, or a real problem in communication between lens and camera.
Do a firmware update ensuring that you read and follow all the indications in the page linked below. If you fail the firmware update the camera may not start anymore.
Here Canon firmwar update for EOS Rebel XS / 1000D
That will usually fix the problem, if it doesnt; check lens connector contacts and test using different lens.
