Carlton's proud record of never winning a Wooden Spoon (in VFL/AFL)
came crashing down around us in Season 2002
, and was repeated twice shortly thereafter. The rebuild then took shape, but we were all shocked to see its collapse and another wooden spoon within a decade:
The Blues won their first Wooden Spoon in 1894
in the V.F.A. winning only 2 games. A further 108 years of competition would pass before Carlton would once again take out that dubious honour.
They also finished equal last on 12 match points with Richmond in 1896
, which was Carlton's final year in the Association ranks. With percentage taken into account, then Richmond won the Spoon. Carlton's percentage was 51.1% compared to Richmond's 39.69%.
