I've had players who absolutely refuse to read the rules because 'Jim knows all that stuff'. Players who've been in the group for years but didn't know, and refused to know, how to do character advancement.

And this 'social combat' bullshit where rather than role play something you simply make a few rolls and give a half-arsed idea of what you want to say.

That and any game with more than a page of rules is criticised as 'way too crunchy' by younger guys on forums I simply don't go to any more.

But for real kick back? Try and get someone to do some simple mathematics.
"MegaTraveller had formulas! Where is the fun in that?!"
Like, the simplest bloody formulae you can imagine and they're too lazy to learn a vital life skill.
