Quoted from jawjaw:
Sounds like a lot of people start putting their names down prior to announcement these days. Good for Stern but sucks for a lot of people that get locked out of chance to get one. If this is really happening on a large scale, Stern should consider a lottery system or maybe just making more LE's.
Dead right. LEs are gimmick just to get scrape in more cash. I can see why they do it but it sucks.
