Do wrong decisions cause bad behavior?

Billy Bowden while endorsing the umpiring review system said it will improve player behavior and reduce stress on match officials.
His logic being a majority of bad behavior by players arises out of umpiring decisions. Therefore, when television replays correct wrong decisions he concludes it will automatically eliminate petulance on the field.
Though the reasoning appears sound, the skeptic concludes that the players will surely find another excuse to behave badly.
Do you think bad behavior emanates out of wrong umpiring decisions?

PLAYERS WILL STILL BEHAVE BADLY BUT NOT BEACAUSE OF UMPIRING DECISIONS. THEY WANT TO BEHAVE BADLY AND BE SEEN AS A FIGHTING CERICKETER. UNFORTUNATELY WHEN THIS HAPPENS MANY PEOPLE SUPPORT THEM CALLING THEM TEMPERAMENTAL AND COVER UP THEIR BEHAVIOUR.
