A Geelong fan felled by a vicious punch after an AFL football final match could have been killed by it, police say.
The attack left the 32-year-old Patterson Lakes man lying unconscious and bleeding from the head at Richmond train station following the Geelong-Collingwood match on September 20.
The victim was drinking with a friend at a nearby hotel before heading to the station about 1.50am, police said.
The pair was walking to a platform when two unknown men began taunting the victim about his Geelong Football Club clothing.
When the victim told his assailants to "pull your head in," police believe one of the men punched him in the head, causing him to fall backwards and slam his head into the concrete.
Detective Senior Constable Craig Buttigieg said the damaging punch had the full weight of the attacker behind it.
"The security footage shows him take two steps, one punch and the victim is out like a light,” he said.
“It could have killed him.”
Detective Senior Constable Buttigieg said the pair then left the victim lying unconscious on the ground and bleeding from the head.
He was taken to The Alfred hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull and a damaged ear drum.
Police describe the attackers as fair-skinned and aged in their 30s.
The first man had dark hair and was balding. He was of medium build and wearing a light, long-sleeved shirt under a dark-coloured sports coat and blue jeans.
The second man had thick dark hair and a solid build. He was dressed in blue jeans and a bright blue shirt under a medium-length black leather jacket.
