In footy, as in life, things come and things go. Just ask WA's two AFL teams after both saw their finals campaigns snuffed out on the weekend.
Fremantle started like a house on fire but were unable to keep the flag flame burning as they were knocked out by the Crows in Adelaide.
And 24 hours late it was West Coast's turn to leave the party, in another close contest which saw the visitors make all the early running before being overhauled.
So instead of the Perth teams looking forward to a preliminary final, it's Collingwood and Adelaide who go forward for a shot at the grand final.
The Pies will fancy their chances of winning in Sydney, considering their incredible record against the Swans.
But the Crows will face an uphill battle against dominant Hawthorn, who will be well rested after a 15-day break.
