Probably the two teams that have been in the VFL/AFL from the beginning in 1896 and have won the Most premierships as well: Essendon and Carlton - with 16 premierships a-piece.
Although some try to claim it, you also probably couldn't give it to the Brisbane Lions club, either, since it was really an outgrowth of Brisbane Bears which commenced in 1987, and which, in turn, was really an outgrowth of the Fitzroy Lions.
Which AFL team has won 10 premierships
Both Carlton Blues and Essendon Bombers have won 16 premierships in the AFL.
Carlton and Essendon have the most premierships with 16 each.
Essendon and Carlton have won the most premierships with 16 premierships each.

The question is actually invalid, because both Essendon and Carlton have won the most at 16 premierships each. Therefore, the next team will have won the third most AFL Premierships; and that is Collingwood. The Collingwood Magpies have won 15, but they have lost many more grand finals than they have won!
no ... The most successful AFL teams are Essendon and Carlton, each with 16 Premierships
Michael Tuck (Hawthorn) 7 premierships
The best AFL team would be either the team/s which has/have won the most premierships, or if one is meaning in current terms, then the best team is that which most recently won the premiership. Carlton and Essendon have won the most Premierships at 16 each, but Collingwood has played in the most grand finals - at 42 and lags just behind them at 15 premierships. Geelong, however, has won the most recent, 2011, premiership - and in fact, three of the last five premierships, and would have to qualify for current title as "the best team in the AFL".
Both Carlton and Essendon have won 16 premierships each, the most out of any team in AFL/VFL history.
