Wayne Carey (born 27 May 1971) is a former Australian rules football player who played for North Adelaide in the SANFL, before joining Australian Football League club North Melbourne in 1989. He also played with the Adelaide Crows.

A dual Premiership Captain at North Melbourne, four time club Best and Fairest and seven time All-Australian, Carey, nicknamed "The King", is generally considered to be one of greatest players to have ever played Australian Football. In 2001 he was named as centre half-forward and captain of North Melbourne's Team of the Century and in 2008 was named as Australian football's greatest ever player as part of a list of the top 50 players of all time, published in the book The Australian Game of Football, which was released by the League to celebrate 150 years of Australian rules football.[1]

Carey has received significant media attention for off-field scandals, both as a player and after retirement.
