Carlton has won 16 Grand Finals. Although Essendon has also won 16 premierships, it has won only 14 grand finals in this achievement. The premierships of 1897 and 1924 were decided by a round robin finals series and no grand final was played in those years.
As of the year 2010, Essendon and Carlton have each won 16 Premierships. Collingwood has won 15 grand finals, and Melbourne, I believe, might be 4th with 13 Grand Final victories.
Carlton has won 16 Grand Finals, and therefore, 16 Premierships in AFL football.
