I was tanking Magtheridon tonight. As far as I know, I was far ahead on the threat meter during the whole encounter. At one point, an enhancement shaman named Groumph got bounced up in front of Magtheridon and was killed by a swing. Not a cleave. It was odd. Right before that swing by Magtheridon on Groumph, Groumph had his swing parried by Magtheridon. I was under the assumption that parries resulted in faster attack speeds against the tank. I didn't think it resulted in an attack on the person that got parried. Any ideas? I've provided the combat log extract as well as a link to the full combat log as well.

20:46'01.265 Groumph's Swing hits Magtheridon for 233 Physical damage (glancing)
20:46'01.265 Corrupt's Swing hits Magtheridon for 184 Physical damage (glancing)
20:46'01.312 Matalus's Unstable Affliction dots Magtheridon for 542 Shadow damage (115 resisted)
20:46'01.375 Aerivana's Corruption dots Magtheridon for 707 Shadow damage
20:46'01.375 Groumph's Swing parried by Magtheridon
20:46'01.375 Arthritis's Siphon Life dots Magtheridon for 273 Shadow damage
20:46'01.375 Blaze's Conflagration dots Extasee for 750 Fire damage
20:46'01.375 Magtheridon's Swing hits Groumph for 15292 Physical damage (crushing)

Is it possible you got bounced into a wall and therefore "out of reach" of maggy. I've never heard of it on maggy but I think it's possible on other encounters to get "stuck" for a second somewhere where they cant hit you and then they turn to the second highest on agro list???

just a suggestion.

Sounds pretty reasonable. The mob will hit anything in melee range if the highest threat target is outside and the mob itself is rooted in some way.
