QPR skipper Joey Barton does not believe that crowd abuse will stop unless individuals are made to pay for their actions.
"It is a strange society we live in where a lot of things are not allowed to be said in normal atmospheres but in football grounds it's like anything goes," Barton told Sky Sports News.
"It is what it is. There's no point as a player sort of complaining about it because none of us can stop the 20, 30, 40,000 people whatever it may be singing what they sing or chanting what they chant.
"It is one of the disappointing aspects of the game but it is part and parcel of it and until there's an accountability probably it will continue for a long time."
In 2009 four Tottenham fans were banned from football grounds for abusing Sol Campbell in a match against Portsmouth at Fratton Park.
