07:33 AM ET 12.12 | Some stories write themselves. The most exciting moment of the 2013 winter meetings took place in the self-parking lot outside the Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel at 12:03 p.m. local time Wednesday. Forget trades, free-agent signings and rumors. Two men tried to beat the crap out of each other, witnesses said, and one of them threatened to burn the other's house down. ... While it remains unclear who the men were, context clues from two witnesses to the altercation indicated that the fracas, which featured at least one kick, a handful of wild haymakers and intervention from both a local sheriff and hotel security, happened after one player agent accused another of trying to poach a client. Stay the [expletive] away from my guy!" one man yelled, according to witnesses.

All we need here is a mud pit and ropes. Sounds like almost any player agent I've heard about.

Boras would likely have a few holes through him at this point if that were the case.

It would be better if Beyonce beat him up...she could probably twerk him to death with that can.

I'm very surprised this didn't happen a long time ago.

Is this now a new attraction at Disney World? Next to Pirates of the Caribbean, we have Agents of the Parking Lot.

One of the agents had a mouthful of ice cubes so he could coldcock the other guy.
