What are these 'rainbowing' artifacts and how/why do they appear? I'm currently making a montage from VHS tapes (also from a basketball game) and have the same sorta issue.

Thread: What are these artifacts? (VHS)
Looks like an old recording on the tape hasn't been fully erased, not uncommon to see this at the beginning of recordings because the first part of the recording hasn't gone past the erase head.

Chroma errors from lack of flying erase head on reused tape.
You can filter that out in VirtualDub, with the Camcorder Color Denoise filter.
