What does "alligator arms" mean......?

I know alligator have a strong grip with their teeth and jaws....
But they do have short little feet and "arms" if you will....

Have I hit the nail on the head here? I'm just not sure.

I'm pretty sure it means a player has short arms.
People may not remember exactly what you did
or what you said....

~BUT~
they will ALWAYS remember how you made them feel.
