What happened then? According to the main page, we had 154 users online at that stage.
I was thinking the only thing it could be is either Hird or Sheedy announcing their retirement. :?:

I remember mentioning it at the time.

I'll try and dig it up.

The site was having issues in June 2007, It might be something to do with that.

Tuesday the 5th was in the week after the game against Sydney when McPhee was out of bounds and we won by a kick. Apart from that, nothing groundbreaking was going on.

I'm pretty sure it was a glitch as I doubt we have ever had anywhere near that number on line at once.

I remember seeing it at the time and wondering how it could have happened as there was nothing special going on at the time.

From memory it was some type of time glitch on the board. The counter kept going, even after people had logged off.
