no one sounds dumb asking questions - we all have to begin somewhere, and all need to learn the lingo or skills some way some how. Glad to see you taking the initiative to ask!

Better then not asking a question.

G is simply a common term to reffer to someone who has been shot.

Ex. Back left is a G or G3=meaning 3 people have been shot.

Yup! Don't worry if you don't understand, we don't think you are dumb because of it. We aren't born knowing it! And yes, G stands for "gone" or "goner". G's can also be referred to "kills" or "eliminations". You can say "I got two G's off the break". Or use it to call ex. "Back left is a G (goner)"

I get confused on the G3/G4 call outs all the time, It seems like it would be the other way around.

its something dynasty sort of started on accident. they used a "g-count" to keep track of eliminated players on the other team. G2= two kills, G4 = 4 kills, etc.

and since everyone likes dynasty because they are a bunch of swell chaps when they released their dynasty disected movies everyone started callin G's.

yes you also have to remember you have to count G's so if 1 person on the opposite side gets hit it'll be G1 when the second person is hit it'll be G2 even if a different person on your team get a player out he/she will have to continue the count so it'll be G3

ex:
player1: G1!!!
player1: G2!!!
player2: G3!!!
player1: G4!!!
player3: G5!!!

While we are asking questions, is there a speedball sticky with terms and what not in it?

The "G" count system helps your team keep track of how many remaining players there are on the other team, so like everyone else said, DONT give the wrong G count.

It should have all the info you should need in it. Some of it is pretty old though, but still helpful.

G could mean anything. Could be the position of the bunker on the field, or that someone was out. We say "Zebra" or an opponent being out, like "Zebra 2" means 2 guys are out, 3 still in. Also, we use terms like "God" "Birmingham" "Obama" and others for different bunkers on the field. Every team/players have different meanings.
