Top Ten Australian Football League ( AFL) Teams

The Top Ten

1 Geelong Cats

One of the founding football clubs in the land and has rarely been out of contention for long. Over the past 20 years it's period of near dominance has been impressive. Just think just how great this team would have been had Hawthorn not been so good at the same time.

there just the best I don't even have to say best defenders best forwards best midfielders and ruck

You guys are the best ever you just remember that to believe in yourself.

Geelong are very consistent and very clean, they have lost once but for four points. They have beaten the reigning premiers and Collingwood, two grand finalists from last years granny.

2 Hawthorn Hawks

Not a great result in early times but since the 1970s they've consistently been among the best in the competition. Their recent period of domination under Clarkson including a 3-peat and near 4-peat cements their place among the top teams in this list.

The Mighty Hawks are a consistent, and an unbeatable team in recent history. They have won a 3-peat in the modern era; and they are an exciting team to watch with full of packed action. The Hawthorn supporters are passionate about the game and you often see someone fly for a mark at the club and the crowd roars.
Carn' The Hawks!

Hawks have won the most afl premierships
so they are the best

The AFL started in 1990
The VFL started in 1897 to 1990

Hawthorn is the best by far they have won the most afl premierships and have won a 3 peat

3 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 .

West coast are the best! But sadly are doing terrible in 2020 season. Go the eagles!

Amazingly start after joining the AFL with a losing GF appearance in their second year (1991) and then premierships in 1992 and 1994. Have been amongst the top teams in most years since then adding more premierships.

Eagles are so good considering they are from the 4th most populated city in Australia

We are the best the Eagles slaughtered the magpies 2018, win every derby and even have a chance against the Tigers!

4 Sydney Swans

Swans are the best.Richmond and Eagles are good they aren't good enough for AFL!

Sydney has won 2 grand finals in just the three they have played in

Cheer cheer the red and the white honour the name by day and by night lift that noble banner high shake down the thunder from the sky wether the odds be great or be small swans will go in and win overall while her loyal sons are marching onwards to victory

Such a talented roster full of young guns and extremely talented veterans. Swans made the biggest comeback in 2017 startin 0-6 but came back and made finals, no team has ever done that before. 2018 is our year to win the grand final

5 Richmond Tigers

Were regular grand finalists between 1920 and the mid 1940s but were unsighted again until they became a powerhouse in the late 1960s, winning 4 premierships with one 2nd between 1967 and 1974. Another flag in 1980 but then faded badly until the last few years when they've finally returned to the top of the table.

Without any doubt I thought we can tell you that are best for ever

Uh duh the footy experts say they are the best either than brisbane at the moment

First and only club to reach 100,000 members in one season. No other club even comes close.

6 Collingwood Magpies

Hate Collingwood, but there's no denying that they've consistently been among the top teams throughout their history. 15 premierships from 45+ grand final appearances is an incredible tribute to their consistency ... and it gave us the great term "Collywobbles"

Good old Collingwood forever,
We know how to play the game.
Side by side we stick together,
To uphold The Magpies name.
Hear the barrackers a shouting,
As all barrackers should,
Oh, the premiership's a cakewalk
For the good old Collingwood!


This team is the worst it should suffocate for sure they are complete poos

Collingwood have won 15 Grand Finals, the third most of all time. Collingwood have been in I think 33 or 34 losing Grand Finals showing they're always up their. A team that in the 2018 season came from nowhere to make a losing Grand Final. And now, in the 2019 season Collingwood are currently 2nd and will win their next 5 probably. what a team and question is..How did Richmond get their? And West Coast! West Coast are terrible. yeah they beat us but still.

7 Essendon Bombers

I think Essendon is a supportive team and not a cheating team

Rarely away from the top of the ladder for long and were particularly strong in the late 1930s and 1940s winning 4 premiership and runners up 5 times in an 11 year period. Have struggled since their last GF appearance in 2001.

With joe Daniher back in the team the bombers are going to be a tough team to put down

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".

8 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.

I don't hate Port but I dislike them. They aren't bad and they aren't good.

The most decorated Aussie rules club has a special place in the AFL - a rocky relationship with the league, and some up and down years, but you can't find a purer traditional footy club underneath any other AFL franchise as you can Port.

Have a winning percentage of 51.9

9 North Melbourne Kangaroos

North Melbourne is the best by far in my opinion because all of my family goes for them and their such a great team.

The last of the Victorian VFL/AFL teams to win a premiership (in 1975) but became one of the strongest teams over the next 25 years. Only resulted in 4 flags and 4 runners up medals, but they were almost always in contention.

THEY ARE THE BEST. My family adores them and we watch them every time they are on. GOOO ROOS

North Melbourne Better than any other team in the AFL! GO THE KANGAS!

10 Carlton Blues

Has the equal most number of premierships and was extremely strong during the 70s, but among the best from the late 60s till the mid 90s.

They should always be first and not tigers because my brother goes for them. GO BLUES

Carlton should be first they have won most premierships go blues

Blues are the champions of AFL they won the most grand finals we are the Navi blues go blues!

The Contenders

11 Adelaide Crows

Deserves to be in the top ten, the crows are an amazing team but they're not always consistent, they are a great side and have a big chance at the premiership this year in 2019, Carn the 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!

Adelaide crows rock every other team suck and they will win the final this year in 2017 go crows

They're not going to the finals in 2018 but in 2019 they're going to fantastic!

12 Western Bulldogs

The western bulldogs are the best because they can bully you and they won on the grand FINALE so yeah!

They are awesome 6th on ladder WILL BE PREMIERS

Always been my favourite and they won the grand final too!

Dogs are the best in the world no one can be as good as them

13 Melbourne Demons

People shouldn't be judging this on a teams current situation but on the entire history of the club. Melbourne are the oldest club and had the longest and most complete period of dominance in the history of the game. 2nd in 1954, premiers in 1955,1956,1957, 2nd in 1958, premiers in 1959 and 1960. Then another in 1964.

Amazing. Great history, stood up to Carlton when they were ruling. Saints best allys. Classic team

Damn what happen to this team after 2006, they almost had it in 2017 but thanks to collingwood and west coast this team haven't been to the finals for 11-13 years

They should be higher even though they sometimes lose and they are the oldest team ever!?!?

14 Brisbane Lions

Can't consider the Fitzroy record as they are no more Fitzroy than Sydney are South Melbourne. Only been in the competition a fairly short time but have achieved a lot. Their period of dominance in the early 2000s under Matthews was incredible and the envy of all the non-Victorian clubs who have joi9ned the competition since 1990.

Lions are the best because they try and they are thinkers they look were there going to pass oh and also because I'm a LIONS FAN @DA BEST

#all for one

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

15 Greater Western Sydney Giants

No. 1 dominates thr rubbish teams anyway how did geelong come first Sydney swans can even beat em idiots

The best team of all time

Gonna win the premiership

They are just better then bulldogs

16 Fremantle Dockers

Best team in the afl, especially after this years trade period!

They are going pretty good this year, was bad that they lost barlow.

They are a good footy team that never gives up

They are the best of course

17 St. Kilda Saints

Saint great club with a huge future should win the flag in the next 5 years or so GO SAINTS

St are the best but how are they last in the best in the league

St Kilda are the best

Go the mighty saints

18 Gold Coast Suns

Not to bad a club. I like the idea of coming to Cairns.

will be in the afl in 2011.

Without gary ablett this team is winless

They suck you people get a better life

19 Fitzroy Lions

Come on guys lets get them higher than Gold Coast

Are no longer in the AFL but are better then Gold Coast and GWS

20 Brisbane Bears

Cool Team Awesome Merge With Awesome Team To make Legendary Team
