Terrorist training camp?

At the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) on 16th September the First Semi-Final between Richmond and Carlton resulted in a tie between the two AFL teams. Umpire Ian Coates was assaulted when angry spectators invaded the ground. Liberal Senator Ivor Greenwood was Australian Attorney General 1971 -72 and in that position was the minister responsible for ASIO and worries were being voiced about alleged terrorist groups in Australia.
