The question is actually invalid, because both Essendon and Carlton have won the most at 16 premierships each.

Which team is the best team in AFL?

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".

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.

In its very limited time in the AFL [proper], only the Fremantle Dockers have failed to win a premiership. However, in the club's homegrown state competition - the Western Australian Football League, the original clubs of South Fremantle and East Fremantle have each won many premierships. Strictly, having long histories in the AFL-VFL, the least premierships have been won by both - the Bulldogs and St. Kilda, at only one each. On the other hand, Carlton and Essendon have won the most AFL Premierships - with 16 a-piece.

Which team has won only four afl premierships?

No Team has. The AFL was born in 1990 and No Team has won 4 since then!! Brisbane has come close playing in 4 Grand finals but only winning 3 (In a row!)! Collingwood is the only Team to win 4 Premierships in a row but that was as a VFL Team! ("THE ONLY" Team worth barracking for, i.m.h.o!) Collingwood has "barrackers", the rest have fans or members! Check Our Club anthem and you'll see why!
