Crowd noise should have no impact on how a team performs.. Phoenix has made the playoffs the last few years with AHL sized crowds.
I still say this whole crowd making noise to help their team is a construct of sports fans' imaginations so as to make themselves feel like they are an important contributor. And when players call for more noise, they're just looking for a way to shift the blame from their poor play.

If you want the crowd atmosphere of European soccer, go watch European soccer.
