Videos and more below.
Broncos fans may have unleashed plenty of Philip Rivers hate tweets after Denver bested San Diego in yesterday's playoffs match-up -- but as far as we know, none of them resorted to violence against Bolts lovers.

A similar claim can't be made by members of Chargers Nation. After the game, assorted San Diego fans beat the hell out of a Broncos booster after he arrived at an event wearing a Peyton Manning jersey. Get the details and see not one but two videos related to the incident below.

Chris Biele, whose Twitter account describes him as "#SuperBowl XLVIII correspondent for @Fox5SanDiego," was on the scene. Here's a Biele tweet from a period when a Chargers victory still seemed like a reasonable possibility:

Shortly thereafter, however, Biele sent out this update:

He followed up with this additional comment:

Granted, we're biased toward the Broncos around here -- but doesn't this sound like Biele is blaming the Peyton-jersey-wearing dude for getting his ass kicked, and providing a he-asked-for-it excuse for the guys who pummeled him?

In any event, it didn't take long for a video of the pounding to pop up on YouTube. Update: The original clip was deleted, but we found a news report from a Colorado Springs TV station that includes much of the action. Here it is:

Biele's report for Fox5 includes another video with better quality images, albeit captured after the rough stuff was done. We've included it after the break because it features auto-play coding.

In addition, Biele notes that the event in question had been intended to celebrate the Chargers' season, and it continued after the fight. He also points out that "a photojournalist with a San Diego TV station was bit or nipped by a police dog during the commotion. He was treated for minor injuries and continued to take video of the rally."

The great ones play hurt.

I was there, this dude deserved it. It like placing a Gazelle in from of a Cheetah and expecting it not to be eaten. This guy provoked with words and wearing that jersey. What did he think would happen/? Dumb is dangerous. We were there to celebrate the great season. Not pissed of the Chargers lost. People should not judge if don't have all the facts/information. Makes them look ignorant.

Turns out that particular incident was traffic-related and had absolutely NOTHING to do with fan base of some particular team. Learn to keep up...DWEEB.

Obama LOVES how ALL YOU FOOLS 'Fixate' on this Neanderthal "I ONLY READ the Sports Page" shit - so his NSA can LISTEN to ALL your phone calls & READ ALL your E-mails & when you don't PAY for his 'Zimbabwe-Style' healthcare - he'll SEIZE the $$$ in your bank account, SUSPEND your Driver's License & then put a LIEN on your house !!!

Because all of San Diego is represented by one fan…The Broncos organization should shudder at the possibility, given how so many Donks fanatics behave..

I've been going to Bronco games for, um, never mind, and sit on the visitor's sideline. I have sat next to almost all 31 fan bases and can say from experience that Charger fans are by far the most laid back and good natured… Who are the worst fans to show up at Mile High? *Matt's Top Ten Absolute Worst NFL Fans at Mile High: 1. Steelers -- You're awful, awful people and so wasted. 2. Jets -- You have no right to be as arrogant as you are. 3. Eagles -- I get it, you live in a miserable city and winters there suck and so you want to take it out on the rest of humanity. 4. Patriots -- Boston you were soooooooo much better when you were more like Chicago Cubs fans. Now you're like the after pictures of meth heads and you can even make NYC look classy. 5. NY Giants -- Sorry your career fell apart and you have to live in Denver. 6. Redskins -- Your mascot is racist. 7. Baltimore -- I wish your team didn't exist. 8. Raiders -- It used to be fun rivalry, now I just worry for my safety around you. 9. Cowboys -- A billion dollar stadium and no QB. 10. Packagers -- The Packers are a cool team, everyone gets that, but it's Wisconsin, don't tell me you miss it. How are Bronco fans on the road? No idea. How are we at the stadium towards other team's fans? The chemistry at Mile High has changed since the new stadium opened and the "skyboxification" of sports became the norm. The overall effect is that less kids show up to major sporting events and so more cussing, drinking, harassing goes on. *Humor -- settle down internets.

On the flip side, I sat in the lower level of the stadium yesterday, near handfuls of San Deigo fans & none of them were harassed or threatened at all during the game. So, yes, it happens, it happens at games all over, with fools of all kinds, but it's a reach to lump Broncos fans into one group. Ridiculous actually. I'm a fan of both the Broncos & the Chargers for many years now, a Denver native, and a sports enthusiast, but I also know it's just a game, I enjoy it for entertainment and that's it. I, nor any of my Broncos loving fans & family would ever harass other fans. Sorry, but no, most Broncos fans are not the most hateful or worst around. Plenty of us are just happy, normal, non-violent, football loving, good time having Mile High fans.

Lol westword was asking a question. Didn't really say anything. All teams in EVERY city and for EVERY sport have good and shitty fans. Some cities ma be a little worse than other but for the most teams is just good and bad people.

This is one of many reasons why you're an idiot if you wear a sports jersey. Unless you are a member of that team, and on the playing field, you come off as a complete tool.

And, it seems these days, also a target.

Every team has its violent fans who can't control themselves. Just like the Broncos, San Diego also has both good and bad fans. Westword is becoming less and less of a reliable, unbiased opinion in the news. More like a gossipy highschool blog.

Who gives a shit. He is just lucky the cops were near by to save his ass. Probably the reason he was there taking shit in the first place. Looked like a reunion and disagreement between the Fat Boys rap group of the 80's.

Have another pint mate. These were your definition of hooligans. We are fanatics not hooligans. Very big different. They always compares events like this with you country and culture of football hooligans. So enjoy your pint and good day from across the pond.
