Best Answer

During the 1950's and 1960's, Norm Smith coached the Melbourne Football Club to 6 Premierships over 11 seasons, with 11 consecutive finals appearances! Those were the days when only 4 teams made the finals.

None other has even approached that kind of record.

Who has won most afl premierships as player and coach in total?

After some research, I believe the answer to be that there are 3 different people who answer to achieving the most premierships as VFL-AFL players and coaches: The first was Jock McHale, who won 2 premierships solely as a player for Collingwood - the first being in 1903 - his first year at the club. He then went on to coach Collingwood to a record 8 premierships = 10 total premierhips. The second was Norm Smith, who played for Melbourne Football Club from 1937. He played in 4 premierships for the club. Later he went on to coach 6 premierships over an 11 year period = 10 total premierhips. The third was Ron Barassi, who played for Melbourne, winning 6 Premierhips as a player only with that club. Following his time at Melbourne, he accepted a coaching opportunity with Carlton, which club won 2 premierships during his short stay with the club. He then went on to coach North Melbourne for a further 2 premierships = 10 total premierships! However, of those premierhips, some won by Ron Barassi and Jock McHale were achieved as playing coaches.

Who has won the most premierships in the AFL?

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

What AFL team has won the highest ratio of premierships?

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.

Has AFL club Sydney Swans won a premiership before?

Sydney Swans has won one AFL Premiership - in 2005. However, the club is the direct result of the 1982 relocation of the South Melbourne (Swans) Football Club from the VFL competition - the forerunner competition of the AFL, Sydney becoming the club's new home. South Melbourne Swans had won 3 Premierships before this move - 1909, 1918 and 1933. So the Swans are officially attributed with having won 4 AFL Premierships.
