: Armchair sociologist

: what is an armchair sociologist? Thanks!

Armchair x : Someone who sits at home in their comfy chair, perhaps knows very little about a subject, yet constantly offers their opinion as if they are an expert. The most common in the US is the armchair quarterback who watches football on TV and tries to tell his team what they are doing wrong and what they should be doing right. The armchair quarterback is frequently married to the back-seat driver. (^_^)
