California?

So, watching Social Paintball's coverage of both World Cup 09 and Phoenix 2010, I keep hearing coaches yelling "California!", mainly the coaches of Ironmen and (I believe) Impact. Anyone know what California is a code for? If it helps, they're yelling it when calling out positions usually, not body counts, so I'm guessing it's the nickname of some bunker.

yeah, i wasn't sure, because i've heard 2 or 3 different teams use it. i thought it might be something that lots of people knew, like "G1" or something.

that could make sense, because shouting "mayan temple" just takes too long.

a question for the guys whose teams use this code: does your team use states as names for other bunkers, too?

a long time ago my friends and i used that code. for us it meant that every one must roll the trigger and start sending streams down the lanes we were covering. good ol' days.

It's not just Ironmen and Impact, Alot of the footage I watch (Raw footage) all kinds of teams are using it, Tho I have no idea what it means.

generally it is used in the psp to stand for the part in the snake before the first knuckle. for my team we are using it to stand for a stacking of players. ie; "california back center" because its easier than "players stacked up in back center" but like they said everybody has a dif meaning for it

i think it means that the team is from california. example:

Player 1: WHO ARE WE PLAYING?!

Player 2: DYNASTY!

Player 1: WHERE ARE THEY FROM?!

Player 2: CALIFORNIA!

it means the right side of the field is open. New york would mean the left tape is open(east coast west coast, like left and right). Their are a few pro teams that use it, after its yelled you will sometimes see a runthrough along the the tape or guys start to push the open side hard.
