Professional Footballers' Association chairman Clarke Carlisle is prepared for a period of "mayhem" in football if it helps the game clean up its act in the wake of the John Terry court case.

Terry was acquitted of a racially aggravated public order offence by chief magistrate Howard Riddle at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday. But the case drew attention to the wider issue of players' contact to each other, with Ferdinand acknowledging in his evidence that aside from the racial aspect, the other terms of abuse are routinely exchanged between players on the pitch.

"I think generally there is a very high level of abusive language that goes on on the pitch and it just seems to be par for the course, but I don't agree that it should be that way," Carlisle said.
