TORONTO -- Each week of the 2012 season CFL.ca brings you the best of your comments from around the web in our Online Water Cooler.
HOT TOPICS OF THE WEEK
While the all-Canadian battle a running back between Andrew Harris and Jon Cornish was the hot topic in Week 15, a wave of pink took over the league in Week 16 as teams, players, and fans raised money and awareness for women's cancers in all four CFL games. As #CFLPink continues in Week 17, here are some of your best comments from around the web:

@AnmolAujla_ Woahh kevin einben has a pink visor #Ticats #CFLPink
@NelsonHackewich Pink visors, I totally want one now #CFLPink
The Montreal Alouettes, meanwhile, were in the unique situation of having their #CFLPink game in Toronto, rather than at home. The team organized a fan train from Montreal to Toronto for the occasion, leading to a section of Alouettes fans to cheer on their team on the road. The Als came away with the win, and having some home support turned out to be a huge boost.
@Alouettes81 couldn't make the game, so he decided to re-create the scene with team mailboxed from Canada Post. Here's how it all unfolded:
|The players line up and are ready to kickoff Sunday's battle for first place||The Alouettes offence takes the field, looking to do some damage with A/C in the shotgun||The Argos offensive struggles continued in the re-enactment, as Jarious Jackson is sacked.|
THE BEST FROM CFL SOCIAL MEDIA (Twitter and Facebook) DURING GAMES
BC @ HAM
@dcowger Big game for the #BCLions tonight. Another game w/o Geroy and Arland. Looking forward to the young guys stepping up again. #CFL #TiCats
Katie Swinarchin frown ohhhh those puur Cats.... let's hope the last game at the stadium is a memorable one in the history of the Cats and Ivor Wynne
Eric Alex Edlund Congrats to Andrew Harris for setting a Canadian Record. Well Done !!!!!
@sdk928 #Ticats playing for their season here, but it sure doesn't look like it. Getting absolutely shredded on d right now. #lions #Ticats #cfl
Lukas W Peter Love all the hate towards the lions, must mean they're doing something right!!!
@rvink #BCLions came in full throttle and the #Ticats never even got the engine started.
@CFLNumber1Fan @BCLionsDen Pretty awesome stats 4 Lulay. #Ticats didn't bring their claws tonight! The #BCLions are playing with them like a cat toy! #CFL
Dan Gilmour Considering Travis was playing despite the death of his grandmother the day before....The fact that he even played was remarkable, but what an incredible game he had!
CGY @ WPG
@WayneReeve As a #Rider fan I still hold hope for the #Bombers to beat the #Stamps and help us out a bit. #CFL #homeplayoffgame
Brett Hornby Anwar Stewart showing he's not done yet.
@NickMurphy123 That Bomber offence hasn't been on the field much they might want to consider putting them on D. That D looks tired #Bombers #Stamps #CFL
@HaileyPINK89 Just throwin it out there... Where's our O line... Bombers gettin to Glenn far to easily.. #dislike #stamps #bombers
Joe Webster Boys never deserved to win that one! Player of game goes to Nick Lewis who like always came up with the big catches!!
@edcullinan Wow. Elliott just mailing footballs to the stamps All. Day. Long. #stamps #bombers
Chris Holler good game, close to the end, never leave a game early.
Tom Friesen With the Bombers this year, nobody should be surprised when they lose. Win one, lose two is how this miserable season has gone.
SSK @ EDM
Brad Fader So I woke up this morning and said to myself....."What a great day for football,what a GREAT DAY FOR RIDER FOOTBALL!"
@_SportsDiva35_ #Riders aren't trying to see the other side of the field though! Aha! Straight #Lockdown over there! #Esks
Desiree Berezanski even if the Riders make it to the playoffs, they will choke like they always do!!!!!!! GO ESKS GO!!!!!
@jrmccrank Kerry Joseph channelling his MVP form from 2007 over the past two weeks. Keep it up. #esks #riders #cfl
@jeffmadams Well if it's any consolation, #Riders fans out drank #Esks fans 5 to 1 at Commonwealth Stadium this afternoon. #CFL
Scott O'Donnell Man, Kerry Joseph is like a new man. He was on fire today. Same with Hugh Charles. Both of them are definitely players of the game.
@LeeHardingSask Ex - #Riders burning us all game. Last year the only game we let Charles be lead rusher he scored 3 TDs. Why did we send him to #Esks? #CFL
@jnicmedhat I almost feel bad for all those #riders fans that went and paid their hard earned money. Are the #esks back? They sure looked good today.
MTL @ TOR
Lou Pindera I have my doubts that the Argos will be able to muster the kind of offence needed to overcome the Als Defense will only go so far...
@MoVernie Seeing two #Alouettes head on collided each other while trying to chase Duries was a treat to watch. How consisten is jackson? Where is Ray?
@StephanieHakim What is defense? What is tackle? What is offense? #Alouettes
@GOLEAFSGO9317 I'm SO PROUD of My @TorontoArgos Defence,We REALLY Shut Down Calvillo an #Alouettes But We HAVE TOO Play HARDER in The 2nd Half #ArgosLive
@CliffyD BEWARE: Angry Bird sighted in Toronto! @kyhebert with the sack. #Alouettes #CFL
@JesDelVecchio i think i've never heard 300 #Alouettes fans in a Toronto stadium be THAT loud!!!! #GOALSGO
John Hutchison Calvillo still didn`t look great today, but good enough, with a little help from his friends!
@MalloryJ47 Great win!Way to show everyone how you do, & come out on top! Keep playing hard & smart y'all! Go ALS Go!@MTLAlouettes #Alouettes #FanTrain
