With three premierships during the past four seasons, Richmond is clearly the dominant force in the AFL competition right now.

And that dominance is further underlined through an analysis of the win-loss ratios of the league’s teams since 2017, with the Tigers way ahead of all their rivals in this regard.

They have won 71 and drawn one of 95 games, which equates to an excellent winning percentage of 74.7.
