Carlton Blues with 16 Premierships (1995) And Essendon Bombers with 16 (2000) also. Collingwood is next with 15 from 34 Grand Finals (2010). If you consider the most consecutive finals appearances as a yardstick, Melbourne Demons appeared 11 times during the days when only 4 teams made the finals for an incredible 6 premierships during the 1950's and 1960's.

If you measure the success of any one year, on the other hand, Essendon has the title of 'the most successful year' - in the year 2000, winning 24 games in one season.
