Anyone got a pet croc we could unleash on whoever was responsible for our failure to sign a striker on TDD... :)

Saw a couple a few years ago in an Australian zoo (Steve Irwin's place) my god they are huge, fast and prehistoric killers.
Awful way to go. RIP, Toffeeman, I am sure Howard Kendall will be waiting for you.

Can people react to a story exactly how they want? I fully respect anyone who feels a lot about this sad event.
For myself, never heard of the lad, no nothing about him, him supporting the same team not enough to get me upset but as with anyone attacked by a croc, must be awful and feel for family, just as family of anyone who dies. Had a similar reaction with Diana Spencer, Bruce Forsyth and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
This does not make me bad or insensitive. If I chose to ask Paul Ferry how he is in next post this is also okay.

Crocodiles, like sharks and other predators, are essential in maintaining the ecosystem in nature today. That's why it's important to ensure they are protected.
