Fan favourite Betts has flourished with Adelaide since joining the club at the end 2013 as a free agent, ending a nine-year stint with Carlton. “It was a no brainier,” the 30-year-old said today at West Lakes. “Ever since I moved across I love the club, love the supporters, love the players, the group and the coaching staff so it was a pretty easy decision for me.” Betts, who will be tied to the Crows until the end of 2020, said contract negotiations had been straight forward. “It was a bit weird because I think the Adelaide Crows have never offered a 30-year-old three years,” he said. “They approached me and said: ‘how long can you play for?’, and I said ‘probably another three years’, so that’s how it played out from there.” Betts — who has played 69 games at Adelaide — has not missed a match for the club in three seasons. He finished 2016 as the club’s leading goal kicker with 65 majors and was runner-up in the club champion tally behind Rory Sloane. “No, no chances” was Betts’ answer when asked if he had considered leaving the Crows at any stage. “I grew up barracking for the Adelaide footy club and I’ll probably, not probably, I will, end my career here. “I think we have a chance to win a premiership and I guess that’s what every kid’s dream is to play in a premiership and win one, so I think our group’s got that and I’m really looking forward to the future ahead. “And even if you don’t win a premiership knowing you’ve been the best that you could be is, probably, you know I’d be happy with that.” Last year Betts won the AFL’s Goal of the Year for his third-quarter, right-foot blast from 40m out at Adelaide Oval’s northwest pocket during Indigenous Round on May 28. In 2015 Betts claimed the same prize for a long left-foot kick from the same pocket against Fremantle, also during the AFL’s Indigenous Round. He has played played 253 AFL matches and kicked 479 career goals.
