Steve Irwin's father 'sad and angry' that cameraman disclosed the grisly final moments of his son’s life and his last words
Steve Irwin was subjected to a particularly brutal death.
The daring but endearing Australian wildlife expert was poisoned after being stabbed by a stingray’s foot-long barb “thousands of times” as he and cameraman Justin Lyons attempted to get a shot of the creature in its natural habitat.
Lyons poke publicly about his death for the first time when he appeared on an episode of Network Ten's Studio 10 programme last March, disclosing the gruesome details of Irwin’s final moments and even telling the host what his final words were.
But a year later, Irwin’s father Bob Irwin has admitted he was less than impressed with Lyons for publicising the details of the tragic event.
Appearing in a special about his son for Australian Story, he said: “I personally felt very sad and, to a degree, angry about what Justin had to say.

Banner Contest Clarification
The Winter banner contest is closed, but we will be having two more banner contests this year—Spring (Sep/Oct/Nov) 2015 and Christmas/December 2015—so I thought I should post a clarification for the next contests.
The banners entered into the contests do not have to be seasonal banners. The contest name is "[SEASON] [YEAR]" because that is the name of the theme. The themes are named that way so they are easy to find in case someone wants to go to "Edit Profile" and choose one of our old themes. All of our old themes are available and will continue to be available through the end of 2015.
You actually have three options when entering the banner contest.
1) Seasonal banner.
2) The banner can be themed after a birthday or holiday in that season.
3) Generic fansite theme; basically any banner with Bindi on it will work.
I hope this clears up any confusion. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me, email me or leave a comment.

We did not get any Calendar Competition entries, so we won't be doing anymore Calendar Competitions.
