I would agree that having the loudest guy in the building sitting right behind you could get annoying, especially if he's just doing it for the sake of being loud. But I don't think Rogers Arena is quiet because people are cheering too quietly. The problem is that too many people make no noise at all and are totally passive observers. 18,000 people doing a "golf clap" will sound a lot louder than one section of Southsiders singing at the top of their lungs.

Usually it's so quiet that I feel like 18,000 people can hear everything I say. If the general level of cheering was a little louder I think you would see more people getting involved. People get intimidated about cheering when it's so quiet you can hear yourself echoing across the arena.
Hear hear.
