Van Berlo, 26, announced an extension in his contract until the end of 2016 with a parting shot at Tippett who walked out on the Crows at the end of last season after months of ugly speculation the big forward would leave.
Tippett, 25, was whacked with an 11-week playing ban as well as a $50,000 fine for negotiating a secret deal to go to any club his choice if he left the Crows and eventually ended up at reigning premiers Sydney through the December pre-season draft.
Van Berlo declared the Crows playing list united and committed to a definite premiership drive in approaching seasons.
Van Berlo joined crucial big man links in ruck force Sam Jacobs and brilliant young key defender Dan Talia in new contract deals confirmed by Crows management this month.
Van Berlo revealed that as Crows captain he had spoken with the departing Tippett at the time of his departure.
“In the Kurt Tippett case it wasn’t handled well from his point of view,” said the Crows skipper.
“The players certainly reacted accordingly to that. They feel like they were let down in many ways there.
“So they’ve seen ways that they shouldn’t do it if they choose to leave our system.
“But I don’t think we’ll have that case to deal with any time soon.
“The players all want to be here and that’s the most important thing.
“We want players that want to play for the Adelaide footy club.”
