That former players, or coaches, don't understand many of the rules they have never had any opportunity to be confronted with is clearly not surprising. What always baffles me is why so many, are so quick and so adamant, to mouth off so loudly about so many things they, themselves, should clearly understand they have absolutely no solid understanding of.

Speaking of clueless, I have this favorite joke:

During a baseball game, the coach asked one of his young players, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"
The boy nodded.
"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win together as a team?"
The boy nodded.
"So," the coach continued, "when a strike is called, or you are out at first, you don't argue or curse or attack the umpire. Do you understand all that?"
Again the boy nodded.
"Good. Now go over there and explain it to your father."
