Leon Cameron thought it was pure genius. Don Pyke reckoned it was special.

Eddie Betts' latest goal of the year contender left both rival AFL coaches awestruck.

Adelaide's Betts tiptoed the boundary line before curling a spectacular 40-metre snap shot in the Crows' 22-point win against Greater Western Sydney on Saturday night.

"I think I made a comment in the box to the boys, I said `geez, that's a bloody good goal, isn't it," Giants coach Cameron said.

"He's a special player. It's a special round, let's be honest, it's a fanastic round and the AFL do it terrificly well, the indigenous boys no doubt liven up our game just by what they can do.

"That goal that he did was just pure genius."

Crows coach Pyke said of Betts: "He's a special player. He does special things."
