Brian Taylor (born 10 April 1962) is a former Australian rules footballer and current Australian Football League (AFL) commentator on television for the Seven Network.
He played with Richmond and Collingwood from 1980 to 1990.
But, in a war of words, former nanny Ms Waring's friends say she has been left 'completely blindsided' by the news as she was pictured yesterday looking upset as she spoke on a mobile phone.
Taylor called the Friday night and either the Saturday or Sunday afternoon game for 3AW, alternating with Tony Leonard subject to commitments with the Seven Network.
The 30-year-old off spin bowler was pictured passionately kissing his new love Emma Mc Carthy in the lead up to the crucial Third Ashes test in Perth, Western Australia.
Friends say Lyon's relationship with Melissa Waring, his partner of ten years, is over and that he is 'very much in love' with Miss Mc Carthy, who he flew in to see ahead of his international teammates while his partner stayed at home in Sydney looking after their two young daughters.
Towards the end of his playing career, Taylor was approached to write a weekly column in the Sunday Herald newspaper.
He kept a diary throughout the 1990 season, publishing it as Black and White: The Taylor Diaries.
