Carlton Blues

Carlton BluesThe Carlton Blues are one of the most successful clubs in the history of the AFL, having won the equal-most VFL/AFL premierships, 16, tied with bitter rivals Essendon. The team’s last premiership however came in 1995, and they have not been sighted at the top of the competition since the new millenium.
