Channel Seven commentator Brian Taylor was beaten up for a “rude and disgusting” interview with Ash Barty and Stephanie Gilmore.
The former Richmond Tigers player, 58, spoke to Barty and star surfer Gilmore in a pre-game interview ahead of the AFL Grand Final at the Gabba in Brisbane on Saturday.
“How many footy games have you been to Steph?” Taylor asked Gilmore, prompting the surfer to say “four”.

‘What do you know about it? What’s the first thing that comes to mind When I say “footy” what do you think? ‘Taylor went on to investigate.
Gilmore added, “I don’t know, just the bounce and yellow and black. It’s the two texts that I know. ‚
The commenter called Barty a “soccer flesh head” when she asked about her role in presenting Richmond with the Premier Cup if they should win – which they did.
“Lunch for the two of you today, is that what it will mean? So easy behind the glass? ‘Taylor asked the couple.
“No, definitely not,” Gilmore replied.
Barty is a Tigers fanatic while Gilmore is a Geelong fan – but the surfer wore Richmond colors so she could sit in the Tigers section with Barty.
„Steph, warum Geelong?“ Taylor fragte Gilmore.
“Well, I think Ash made me the Tigers fan today,” Gilmore replied.
Taylor asked Gilmore what she knew about AFL and how many games she had played in
Many viewers found the exchange uncomfortable and vented their frustrations on Twitter
“Didn’t you visit Geelong and that made you a Geelong devotee?” Taylor checked.
Gilmore then replied, “Yes, but today I will go for the tigers.”
To unsubscribe from the interview, Taylor said, “I think these two could go for a wine now!”
Many viewers found the exchange uncomfortable and vented their frustrations on Twitter.
Brian Taylor, the interview was so humiliating. Ask Steph Gilmore if she actually participated in AFL games and if she even knows the rules. Give me a break, ”wrote one woman.
Another viewer wrote: ‘The BT interview with Ash Barty was rude and disgusting. Get him off the TV. ‚
‘The interview with Ash Barty and Steph Gilmore is a good indication that Brian Taylor is a massive whip. Get him out. He’s a whip, ”said a man.
Taylor’s former side, Richmond, roared to victory at the AFL Grand Final on Saturday night, defeating the Geelong Cats to win their third Premier Flag in four years.

The Tigers beat the Cats 81-50 after an incredible third quarter comeback and heroic efforts by fan favorite Dustin Martin.
The loss is a cruel blow to Cats star Gary Ablett Jnr, who is immediately retiring after 357 AFL games. The 36-year-old was injured just moments after the first jump but fought valiantly against his pain one last time.
After the match, Ablett looked emotional and was seen talking to his wife Jordan and kissing their young son Levi, who has a rare and degenerative disease.
Martin, who scored four goals and 21 departures, made history when he became the first player to receive the Norm Smith Medal three times.
The 29-year-old thanked the AFL, Toyota, the government and Richmond Football Club when he received his award.
“First of all, I’d like to thank Geelong for a great game,” he said.
“You are a great club. Well done to Gaz (Gary Ablett) for your incredible career. For the AFL, Toyota, the government, not least the Richmond Footy Club. Let’s go.’
As he left, Martin hugged a mysterious blonde.
