A slang term rarely used in Australian Rules Football for premierships that were won before 1950, by supporters of clubs who were unsuccessful in the era of the grand old game’s early champions such as Dick Reynolds, Jack Dyer and Roy Cazaly. Supporters who use this term are trying to hide the unsuccessful and possibly queer beginnings (Hawthorn Mayblooms) of their own club, by weakly implying older premierships are less worthy because the sport hadn’t reached the massive business status of today’s age.
“Wow Essendon have won 16 premierships!!"

"yeah, well about nine of those were vegemite cups."

“Of course a Hawthorn supporter would say that, founded in 1902 and didn’t win a flag until 1961.”

A slang term used in Australian rules football for premierships that were won before 1950 when the game was less a business and more of a leisure sport. Essentially indicating that premierships won during this time had little to no meaning and thus are nothing to be proud about.
