Streamer instantly regrets roasting viewers in Football vs Soccer debate

Twitch streamer erobb221 threw his hat into the eternal soccer vs. football debate and was almost immediately owned by Google after trying to prove to chat he was right.

Erobb is a fairly popular streamer on the platform with more than 150,000 followers, but he opened a can of worms during a recent stream when he tried to claim that the most popular sport in the world is actually called “soccer” not “football”.

For anyone outside of the U.S. it’s called football, but in the states “soccer” is the go-to term because another massively popular sport is already called football.

Why did erobb start this debate?

In an attempt to prove Twitch chat wrong, erobb insisted that the game’s official name was soccer and he was confident he would have the data to back it up.

“Football dumbass? Actually I’m pretty sure it’s called soccer, dipshit” the streamer told chat. “It’s called fucking soccer. Alright, actually, let’s Google.”

Erobb took his question to Google, confident the internet would prove him right, and Twitch chat wrong – but at first it did neither.

“What is the sport called where you kick the ball?” erobb typed into the search bar. “Speedball? No, ‘into a goal.’”

Finally, Google came up with the sport erobb was looking for and it seemed at first that the streamer had been vindicated.

“Soccer, the sport of Soccer, see? Idiots, Google is right, you’re wrong,” erobb proudly told chat, before reading on.

EA SPORTS FIFAerobb was determined to figure out once and for all what this sport is actually called.

“Called football in most of the world,” he read with a laugh. “I should have read forward a little bit, nevermind.”

Erobb was streaming during prime EU hours though, and the Euro-dominated chat wasn’t about to let him live his claim down.

“‘You’re an ignorant American’, how am I ignorant?” erobb asked. “I forgot that I’m on EU time so I’m getting ganged up on, I don’t have my NA boys with me.”

Estefand/TwitterSadly, erobb had to admit defeat and take the L this time around.

Erobb may have been proven wrong, but the soccer vs. football debate probably won’t die out with his discovery.

What is interesting though, is that the term “soccer” seems to have come from Britain, and not the U.S. originally, according to University of Michigan professor Stefan Szymanski.

The word “soccer” is believed to have originated in Britain around 200 years ago to distinguish the sport from Rugby Football, but the Brits eventually moved on from the term while it remained popular in the states.
