The biggest wins of the decade

Every AFL season there are at least a handful of blowouts on the scoreboard.

While the biggest win in VFL/AFL history remains Fitzroy's 190-point demolition job of Melbourne in 1979, this decade we saw five margins move into the top 20 of all-time results.

But what have been the biggest victories in the AFL since the beignning of 2010 and the end of 2019?

Unfortunately for the GWS Giants, they were on the end of a number of hidings after entering the league in 2012, featuring in seven of the top 20 (but none since 2013). Fellow expansion club Gold Coast copped four of the biggest defeats.

Geelong and Hawthorn don't mind handing out a shellacking, dishing out the four heaviest defeats between them while combining for eight of the top 20 victories.

Season 2011 delivered six of the most one-sided affairs ahead of 2012 and 2013 (five each).

As the decade comes to a close, we've taken a look at the 20 (21) most abundant outcomes.
