    transcript of an in-depth interview with the man himself here (from a few years ago i think).

    interview

    if you can read this and not feel hugely sorry that such a likeable, colourful, positive guy is dead, then you are one mean dude.

    deleted that thread for 2 reasons - one because it isn't appropriate, and secondly because it was started by another incarnation of koti who has now been banned.

    Real shame, although I can't help but think to myself that he was a silly man for risking his life when he was married with kiddies. Was his life I suppose :(

    hard not to like him or at least know he's a genuine person with nothing but heart..(fuck off)


    yes he's annoying and people love to hate him, but its not really cool to like anyone these days

    Yeah..it irked me somewhat when people slagged him off for no real reason. Sure, some people might dislike his personality, but there's no denying his passion or his dedication to what is widely viewed as a very worthwhile cause. Fame and fortune didn't change him one bit, as far as I can see.

    He's kinda like the Anti-Bono in many respects.

    It's what he did, he was a croc conservationist. I doubt stopping even entered his mind or his family's.

    I'm not an habitual complainer, but why on earth did George Alagiah just announce Steve's death with such an upbeat tone on the 6 o'clock news?

    "Steve Irwin is KILLED by a STINGRAY!"

    It's not the dead donkey, it's a sad event, and should be broadcast as such; because he was a funny man, it doesn't make his death, however ironic it may/may not be, joke material for BBC news reporters.

    Can't believe I'm only just noticing this now...

    What a legend, this is close to Mitch Hedberg dying in the shocking stakes, even though Irwin always seemed to put himself in harm's way I could never actually imagine him being killed like that, for some reason.

    There was an interview with his producer on the radio earlier. He was doing some filming for his daughter's new show - nice safe stuff about the coral. They weren't looking for the stingray - it just happened to be there by the sounds of it. Ironic that despite all the danger he put himself in he should be killed in such an accident when he thought he was doing a safe bit of filming :/

    Yeah it's crazy when you put it like that - all the insane situations he'd found himself in I suppose it seemed like he was invicible in my mind. Silly, but that's what TV can do to you.

    Yeah, I know. It was a lame gag aiming at confusion between what raups wrote and Rooney's response.

    ah.. k.

    Heard this morning. As much as he annoyed the animals, he loved what he was doing and did a lot for his cause. RIP.

    What a waste. Poor Terri.

    At least he died doing what he loved, I guess.


    RIP Steve.

    I'm pretty sure that if I'd met him in person he would have driven me absolutely batshit with his loudness and infinite energy, but what a cracking bloke he was. Just knowing he was on the planet being a crazy bastard was a good thing.

    See, I've never got on with Attenborough. He always seemed too... boring. Steve was always full throttle, I liked that.

    i could not believe that he is dead. for me the thing is that he died doing what he enjoyed most. rather that then finding out that you are going to die of cancer. Just feel sorry for the wife and kids.

    On a lighter note, i was capable of doing a really cracking impersonation of him. I used to make fun of my manager by saying in steve irwin style by saying" be careful my friend, there is a creature sitting at that table in that office and IF you are not careful on how you approach him, HE MAY JUST BIIITTTTEE!!!"

    used to crease up my work mates no end.

    may he r.i.p.

    I just find his voice... comforting, I guess. He's always been there doing these programs throughout my entire life so far, and I'd like to believe that he always will be. I have huge respect for the fact that he's still out there making new documentaries and doing what he loves at 80 years of age.

    To be honest when my sister told me "Crocodile Hunter died!". I thought: "What? The actor?", but didn't say anything.

    Then my mom asks what's going on, my sis says:

    "Crocodile Hunter died!"

    "What? The actor?"

    lol

    Oh yes, don't get me wrong, I definitely respect him and what he's done. He's inspired many people to get interested in the subjects. I just prefer the way Steve got so into it, up close and personal.

    Attenborough's a true pro. The famous bit with the gorillas was pure class and his professionalism really shone through on the extended scenes on the dvd. All the time he maintained a quiet and calm voice during what must have been a rather scary time.

    "And now... the alpha male... acknowledges.... my presence. He walks over... slowly... and he sniffs my hand... He. Oh god... he's touching... my... arse.

    Someone.. quick... give him a fucking banana or something.... please... i beg you.

    David Attenborough: A real trooper.

    couldnt have said it better myself
