Top Ten AFL Teams


The Top Ten

1 Geelong Cats Geelong Cats

On and off team over the years but has been dominate in the latter part of the 2000's. You don't win 3 premierships in 5 years without being a talented team.

We are geelong the greatest team of all.
We are geelong we're always on the ball.
We play the game as it should be played.
The song says it all.

They are teaching new players to play footy while all those senior players help until they retire

good job

2 West Coast Eagles West Coast Eagles The West Coast Eagles are an Australian Rules Football team . The Eagles are based in Perth, Western Australia, dawning the colours of navy blue and gold .

Best team in the time they've been in the afl, 3 quality premierships, brought the game out of victoria, what more can you ask

West Coast are the most represented and most popular team in the AFL no question, leading them to easily the best CLUB, perhaps not the best team

We are the west coast wiggles and we're going to sing you a song, we are the wiggles we are really wrong.

How are the eagles beating the Hawks and Swans?

3 Hawthorn Hawks Hawthorn Hawks

12 Premierships in 54 years, 18 Grand Finals, that is on average a Grand Final every 3 years and a premiership every 4.5. 7 Grand Finals in a row from 1983-89 with premierships in 83,86,88 and 89 and then we went on to win the premiership in 1991 despite the critics believing we were too old and too slow. Not to mention the most recent 2014 premiership where we were riddled with injuries all season, including clarko himself but still found a way to get the job done all year. My favourite quote for last years season is, "The football Gods said not this time, the Hawks didn't listen." And I guarantee all you doubters that we will be running out on the G' on Grand Final day this year, our best is still the best simply because recent history has shown that a strong offense wins premierships, not a strong defense. CARN HAWKS

We're a happy team at hawthorn were the mighty fighting Hawks we love our club and we play to win riding the bumps with a grin at hawthorn come you'll find us striving teamwork is the thing that talks one for all all for one we are the mighty fighting hawks

GO THE MIGHTY HAWKS! Awesome players and everything! Best team last 50 years easy as well!

Under Alistair Clarkson Hawthorn have had a total winning percentage of 64 2 and since 2011 Hawthorns win percentage has only been as low as 73.1 in 2015 a year in which they still won the flag convincingly. Not to mention Alistair Clarkson's win percentage for finals footy is 72.7 from 22 finals.

Looking at it as a whole 4 grand final appearances in a row and 3 premierships in a row says enough to make them the of all time especially under the control of Alistair Clarkson!

4 Sydney Swans Sydney Swans

The most professional team in the Afl, it didn't matter that Barry Hall was the best full forward in the league at the time, the swans got rid of him

The Sydney Swans are the most pro club in the afl, all over the world!

How are the swans not in the top ten?! They're absolutley amazing! - ilovesydneyfc

I am in sydney unless we got buddy franklin - Dominic7506

6 Port Adelaide Power Port Adelaide Power

Controversial choice but what puts the power over teams like North and Richmond is their ability to put a young talented list together almost overnight and even win the odd flag. They are Australias most succesful football club and the AFL's 10th.

THIS TEAM IS HOPELESS. Winning only one premiership and being around since 1870 is bad.

just for recreation sake we play

How is North above Collingwood? The pies have had equal time in the VFL/AFL and won 15-4. The pies are far better.

8 Collingwood Magpies Collingwood Magpies

Good old Collingwood forever,
They know how to play the game.
Side by side we stick together,
To uphold the magpies name.
See, the barrackers are shouting,
As all barrackers should.
Oh, the premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
THE SONG SAYS IT ALL, WHY doesn't EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS AFL BARRACK FOR THE PIES! I'm a diehard supporter, they are the best team ever.

Go the pies! We have the most members so I have a feeling that we are the BEST! Who are these 'hawks' you speak of? Oh wait... My dad and bro barrack for them... Ewes

Have a winning percentage of 61.4

Go Pies

10 Carlton Blues Carlton Blues

Most premierships, and probably the best culture

16 premierships and counting. Carlton has been a formidable finals force for nearly a century and although they haven't made a Grand Final since 1999 they still have reaped success over the 60's 70's 80's and 90's.

Simply the best, they've won the most amount of premierships #iamcarlton #UNITED #lovetohatecollingwood

The Contenders

11 Adelaide Crows Adelaide Crows

First team to win back to back premierships in the AFL, more members than any other club, has the fastest man in the league (Patrick Dangerfield), their home ground is the largest purpose built Australian rules football stadium in the world, and they are the pride of South Australia - the mighty Adelaide Crows!

Proud and talented team. They won 2 great premierships in a row in the late 90's and have continued to make finals footy throuout the 2000's

Come on best team by a country mile such a great start to there short career and 4 players with 300 plus games and 9 200 and we have good young players like Tippet who is a star, dangerfield who is a speedster mackay, vince walker, sloane and more and back to back flags in 97 and 98 coming from 5th which has never been done in afl history LOVE TIPPO

Have a winning percentage of 51.8

12 Brisbane Lions Brisbane Lions

WHAT? Brisbane has struggled significantly since their 3 premierships in a row. They literally need a funding off the AFL because they can't afford to fill the salary cap.

3 Premierships in a row!
the best team of the modern era

3 IN A ROW! pretty much sums it up

We are lions we have won 3 premria ships where better than other teams. We are winners go for lions so what dumb geelong cats are the best. We have fury. Were strong together!

13 Essendon Bombers Essendon Bombers

Say what you want about the bombers but they are a successful unit. 16 premierships including one of the most dominant seasons ever in 2000. They were nearly unbeatable in 2000 and it took a strong Lions team to trump them a year later. Many legends have come from Windy Hill and they will continue to "Fly Up".

The oldest team is Melbourne... and saying that Carlton entered the competition is pure rubbish, given Essendon won the first VFL flag in 1897. Still the best team ever (16 premierships), and has consistently got more members than Carlton (the only team to tie on most premierships with Essendon)

Oldest team in the competition, equal most premierships with Carlton. They're such a good club, they shouldn't be this low

The oldest team in the competition is Melbourne. The first team formed though is Geelong. Carlton were in the league before Essendon.
