A rather cool moment happened to me yesterday. I was staying at the Hilton in Adelaide as I was there for a business trip. Sydney FC were staying there as well so I happened to see a few of the players including Simon Colosimo.
The coaching staff was with them as well and as a club they were very courteous. I was standing at the lift waiting to go upstairs to my room and Simon Colosimo and one of their staff was there as well.
It was nice of them to let me go into the lift first. I had a chance to say good luck against Adelaide tonight, which was rather cool. As I was checking out of the hotel in the afternoon, another player and member of coaching staff were also standing in line to ask the hotel staff a query and again they was courteous enough to let me go first.
Sportspeople tend to get a lot of flack, but it's the little things such as being courteous to other people and behaving well in public that really helps boost the image of the team and the players. Was a cool experience all round, shame that they lost.
