The ever-popular Brian Taylor is renowned for his rousing and colourful commentary and he's sure to be a hit with Seven’s viewers.
Universally known as 'BT', Taylor began his career at Richmond before moving to Collingwood where the full forward kicked 100 goals in 1986 to win the Coleman Medal.
BT retired in 1990, and it was a commentary stint with a community radio station in WA the next year that launched him into a career behind the microphone, on radio and TV. A former plumber and ardent home tradesman, BT is passionate about footy, and just as passionate about calling the action for footy fans around the country.
BT says his calling style will be just as passionate and emotional as always.
"I just love the game and love all of the emotions it generates among players, coaches, and above all fans, so I’ll be tapping into all that and hopefully it becomes fun for all.
"I can't wait to work with the recently retired stars of the game, Bulldogs champ in Luke Darcy, Tiger favourite in Richo, and reigning premiership skipper Cameron Ling, all with the big audience of fans that free-to-air on Seven generates."
On the field he believes fans will continue to the see same style of footy we’ve seen over the last couple of seasons with zones and clusters.
"The game will continue to be played as a non-man-on-man contest. And kicking will become the number one element of the game, if it's not already."
BT topped Collingwood's goalkicking every year from 1985-89, played for Victoria in 1986 and also topped Richmond's goalkicking in 1984.
Fans will also hear BT lead 3AW's football commentary team again in 2012 on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons.
