crio’s Q: Of long stops and long sleeves

What a winter!
I’ve driven past some bogs in recent weeks, marvelling at where the full back could find footing for his kick-in. Some grounds are just sodden, others mudheaps.
“The Age” on Monday highlighted the conditions for the VWFL (NW Div) GF here

With Junior finals proliferating I assume Almaknackers have been to some ovals which evoked the “old days” of umps looking for a spot to bounce the footy.
I reckon this has been a vintage year for kids who love getting grubby and for Dads reminiscing about long stops and long sleeves.

Ground reports please…and some anecdotes from “glory days”.
