The AFL landscape, and the fortunes of clubs, changes almost every year.

As it stands after 2018, and given membership outlook, I'd go with West Coast, Richmond, Adelaide and Hawthorn

West Coast made a lazy extra $18 million in 2018. Membership revenue pushing $35 million. These guys are so far in front of everybody else it's not even worth arguing about.
I completely agree - I posted in the main financial thread that the Eagles 82.26 million revenue is purely AFL based (give or take a little interest). Using Collingwood as an example, in their revenue include Netball, AFLW, VFL, their travel business, Glasshouse events center business and of course the 2 venues they run where they earn pokies, food and drink revenue. Richmond earn heaps from their gym business. Take all that out and well the gap is even bigger when its a level playing field.
