I agree with the idea that more support causes teams to perform better. In band, it’s helpful to have more people in the audience (at least, when they’re showing some common courtesy and respect and not talking during the song, but that’s another issue entirely), because it feels like people are actually interested in our performance. It’s also easier to put on a play when the audience is clearly involved, and the best Hi-Q games are the home ones, where we know that the audience is supporting us. I suppose the same concept applies to sports, although since spectators tend to be louder and closer to the players than anything I’ve participated in, it might also feel more distracting--I suppose that part depends on the player.
