Brisbane's Luke Hodge was kind enough to join Triple M's Hot Breakfast on Friday morning.

Eventually, the attention turned to his former mob in Hawthorn, who are set to play in the coldest game of the season tonight against GWS in Canberra.

Temperatures are set to hover just above zero degrees throughout the game, but the Hawks won't be wearing long sleeves, with Alastair Clarkson having banned them at least 10 years ago.

Little else is known about the policy, so Eddie McGuire pressed Hodgey for more details.

The four-time premiership player revealed on Triple M it all boiled down to one game in Tasmania that marked the end of the long sleeves.

"He said 'no more'. How you train is how you play," he told Triple M's Hot Breakfast.

HOW DID THE LONG SLEEVE POLICY START?
