Footy feud at factory turns bloody

`A decade-long feud between two factory workers over the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide ended in a forklift duel that left one with a bloodied face and the other unemployed.

After a history of workplace pranks, jibes and racial insults, Crows fan and Greek-born Simeon Christopoulos, 63, hit Power fan and Italian-born Frank Cappelluti, 58, after the pair locked forklifts on the factory floor of Kilburn steel firm, Korvest.

Mr Cappelluti, of Pooraka, suffered a cut lip and his boss, Mr Christopoulos, who had worked with the company for 34 years, was sacked.’
