Communication Differences And why we should agree to what means what

I would call "left 50 can" or "mid-right can in front of X", because you know, they're sewer pipes. Can't really call them anything else.
Maybe one or two would understand, and then others would call out the same position with a different name like "50 short-stack" or "home tall", which I wouldn't have a problem with, if there weren't 5 other "50 short-stack"s or "home tall"s.
So let this be a lesson, decide with your group what you're gonna call things, like on the recball field, you call the farthest right car "50 right car" instead of just "car! car!". that doesn't help much when there's 5 different cars.
More of a rant than anything but you guys get what I mean.

back center = home
dorito corner, then D1, D2, D3, 50 dorito
Snake Corner, then S1, S2, S3
Sometimes, if they have a can in the middle of the field, I call that a turret
If they have a Mayan in the middle, I tend to call that a rocket (snake rocket, dorito rocket, etc)
And if there is a dominant bunker that has clear shots on everything, I'll call that a "God" bunker
When you start naming the bunkers after dead presidents, providences of Canada, shit gets all fucked up

I always try to relate it in the standard "yard line" format.
For example, on a hill of small dirt piles with little trails between them, If I see a guy on the right side, three quarters of the way up the field I'll say "RIGHT 70!", if a guy is in the very middle I'll call "50 CENTER!" Stuff like that.
Keeps it simple, and every team has a different way of communicating.
