One-eyed preview: Time to make Freo our Drake

Paul Robinson is one of the men behind the cult social media channels 'The Carlton Draft' and 'The Ressies Footballer'

His Black and White passion is unquestionable, and the views represented in this article are solely his own and not representative of the Collingwood Football Club.

There’s so much we should thank the Dockers for.

- Paul Medhurst.
- James Clement.
- Giving Chris Tarrant back to us.
- Our first win in the 1999 season (it may have taken until round eight, but boy was it sweet).
- Chris Mayne (haven’t the haters turned silent?).

The list goes on and on.

As of Sunday night, we will have another thing to thank them for. And it’ll be an emphatic 12-goal victory that cements us as a genuine contender for this 2018 season.

Now is the perfect time for us to straight up bully a side and the Dockers have an injury list as big as Travis Cloke’s hands (huge).

Tom Phillips will continue to do whatever he wants and run around like a golden retriever in an empty park.

Boy oh boy isn’t he a jet? At this point, an All-Australian selection seems more certain than Adam Treloar kicking a goal from 50m out after a running bounce this week.

If I was Bucks (I’m definitely not) my biggest worry would be Nat Fyfe. It’s hard to imagine who plays on him from our side without robbing too much from one area.

I’d love to see Taylor Adams go with him for a portion of the game. Yes, he gives a bit away in height but when it comes to attack on the pill and ability to match it physically he’s right there with him.

I’ll be going to sleep on Saturday night dreaming of Adams hip and shouldering Fyfe back to their sardine tin they call a stadium.

The early headlines this week were dominated by a one-sided battle between rappers Pusha T and Drake.

Drake called out Pusha T and pretty much said "you're not a good rapper and your manager is younger than you" then Pusha T just went WHACK and said "Well, your dad walked out on you, you walked out on a son you deny having and you don't write your own music."

Game. Set. Match.

The long-winded point I’m getting at is that while Pusha T put Drake on burn, our very own Brodie Grundy may end up taking the points this week for most comprehensive embarrassment of another human being.

After the withdrawal of Aaron Sandilands, I’m left to assume Fremantle may opt to not even pick a ruckman at all. It would probably be the safer option. Brodie will eat whoever Freo dare to put against him alive.

The big fella is tearing open the competition like it’s a 30 block of tinnies on a hot summer day. His reign of terror on opposition big men can only be compared to Genghis Kahn’s reign of dominance around the year of 1206.

He’s going to make the Dockers his Drake.
