Thread view count shenanigans in Alex Rodriguez thread?

What the heck went on with this baseball steroids thread?

It was a fairly small 300 posts thread that was only active for two weeks, yet it somehow has over a million views, one of the most viewed threads in DVDTalk history. For comparison, the next most viewed thread in sports has been active for four years and only has 149,000 views.

Just curious.

TIL you can sort a forum's threads by most viewed. To think I never knew that, or needed to know that.

Bump for admin or IB comment. I'm oddly curious.

It's probably a result of it being high up on Google search results for certain terms.
