ARLINGTON (105.3 THE FAN) -- There's more drama in Arlington, and once again, it doesn't involve the Cowboys.

This morning on New School with Shan & RJ, RJ Choppy and I reported that team CEO Nolan Ryan and General Manager Jon Daniels had to be separated by manager Ron Washington Tuesday night in the midst of a Rangers sit-down meeting.

Sources tell New School that the two were engaged in a heated discussion, adding to the speculation of a front office power struggle in Arlington.

The reason for the blow-up is unknown, but given the timing of Jackie Moore's (a Nolan guy) departure on Wednesday, as well as Nolan's silence and absence from Thursday's season-ending press conference, it seems logical that Nolan is fuming once again.
