Strategy Surely Clarko will allow long sleeves! Post here if you’ve actually played in this kind of weather.

Clarko doesn't like long sleeves because he wants the entire team to run out in exactly the same uniform.

So unless all 22 are wearing longys ... nope

Played for Upwey/tecoma Tigers. Many cold games at Olinda, Healsville, Warburton. Worst was Belgrave night game, hail, sleet and an 80km arctic wind. Still haven’t found my balls!

Played jnr footy at Gembrook
I remember the middle of winter at Wandin with not a blade of grass on the ground, Seville where the mud lay at the bottom half of the slope and Wesburn where the wind was funnelled through the mountains and you would literally struggle to stand up straight somedays let alone kick a ball

Big spud Firrito plays there now, or did at least.
Great memories!!! Get to watch me boy do it now. The grounds have much better drainage these days, I’m sure I nearly drowned in mud a few times as a junior

Warby had a pot belly stove in the visitors rooms the last time I played.
That and concrete power poles for goal post.
