Way back when, at the Dawn of Time, the lists were divided off with colored 
ropes. One of them was red, and was soon affectionately known as 'Eric the 
Red'. Thus the lists became known (in the West and some of the daughter 
kingdoms) as the eric. Some areas are trying to encourage the use of terms 
such as 'the lists' or even just 'the field', but old habits are hard to break.
