this guy was a great guy who had a passion deeper than many of us will ever have for something ... all you people bashing him are a bunch of assholes ...

saying that he had this coming is ridiculous ... so then does that mean if an iron worker dies building a skyscrapper standing on an I beam 1000ft in the air its no big deal because he had it coming working in those conditions?

What do you think about him when he's exposed his little baby to a crocodile?
who is the asshole?, too much confidence in himself??? like throwing knives close to your children head.

I personnaly don't care about him putting his own life in danger playing with killer animals, this is his choice, but

bringing his baby at less than one meter of this massive killer is totally stupid, nothing else to say. He tought he was 100% controling the situation... last events show us that a mistake is always possible.

You need to remember, it's his child, not your's. Besides, the whole incident with his child is irrelavent to his death. Have you no respect?

Why Steve dangled Bob in front of crocs and trotted him around was obviously to teach the kid from the start, what a croc is, and how to run away from it.
It must be learnt by Bob before he can walk, simply to avoid him taking his first walk, into the croc pond.
All aussie kids learn to swim before we get to the beach, if we didnt we would drown as often as Eurpean tourists who are not taught to swim as children, or if they are it is not for the same resons we are, which is simply survival through to adulthood.
Same as teaching a child how to use and respect a gun before they are old enough to get one themselves.

As Steve himself said about those who bashed him for showing Young Bob the crocs and infering he was generally reckless....

Steve said on TV, what he does is all about "percieved risk."

I know as an Australian what he really meant to say was,
he is not reckless, it is simply that his detractors are all gutless.
Or maybe just ignorant.

Gutless cowards calling others reckless, simply because they are too gutless to do what others do, are a dime a dozen..
Dont see large numbers of the population admiring any gutless cowards..
They dont even have to risk being forgotten by history.
Cant be forgotten if they were never remembered in the first place.

you call that an incident?, I call that a irresponsible stupidity, a non respect to his own child, risking this small inocent live to prove to his public that "he's the man with crocodile" Totally idiot.
I don't want to argue on your comments "it's his child, not your's" Unbelievable. Yes your right, I have no respect for that kind of clown.

i understand what you guys are saying about his kid ... and i agree that wasnt the smartest idea ... but we're not talking about one thing he did in the past ... we're talking about the death of someone who seemed like one of the few genuinely nice people left in this world ... to bash him and say he deserved it or he had it coming to him just makes you an idiot and people should treat you the same way if you die

The ability to judge one man's entire life and contributions by one incident seems fairly idiotic to me.

raptorgreg, have you ever done anything you ended up regretting? I'm sure that you have. For the record, Steve talked about the incident on TV and said the whole controversy made him feel terrible. We all make mistakes, it's human nature. Now do you really think it's fair to call Steve Irwin an idiot for such an isolated incedent, given everything else that he has accomplished? Not to mention that the guy just died! Obviously not. That said, I think you're a fool for doing so.

Thousands of divers have swam with stingrays and even hitched rides on them. I don't think Steve nor his crew thought that what he was doing was dangerous. It's a freak accident. He didn't have that coming.

I agree, I would refer these characters as pussies, period. Oh, and whimps too.

At least Steve left this world doing what he loved and not behind a f#cking keyboard.

R.I.P. Steve!

God Bless his family.

Deeply saddened by Steve's death; the world has lost a genuine, passionate person who really cared about nature and had a very positive effect on it. Condolences to his family, it is a crying shame.

Makes you think a little bit about our hobby, considering that there is a definite risk factor in what we enjoy as well.

I live only a few miles from where Steve Irwin lived and his Australian Zoo. I never met or saw the man in person.

Remember where you were and felt when President J.F.Kennedy was assinated,or when Princess Diana died in an auto accident.Were they perfect?,did they make mistakes?Steve Irwin was a unique character that the whole World noticed.This is how Australia feels about Steve Irwin. So what!, but think about this. Tens of millions of children the World over are saddened and traumatised by his death. You can fool adults but it takes a special person to really get inside a child's mind and inpregnate it with the qualites as Steve Irwin did.
I suggest you should read of the life of Steve Irwin and then critise if you must,but like the children of the World ,you may benefit from his life.
Steve Irwin was special,or if not, why are we discusing this in a forum that has no connection at all with him.
