q's sports panel gathers — today, with Scott Russell and Megan Greenwell — to discuss these stories:

  • The culture of cheating in athletics, in the wake of reports of a widespread Russian doping scandal
  • Following damning photos of Greg Hardy's bruised ex-girlfriend, what should be done about the Dallas Cowboys player
  • Colorado Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes was arrested in Hawaii on charges of assaulting his wife. It's the first test of MLB's new domestic violence policy.
