Default 2014 orders & the start of NFL season

As I start my 4th week in "final inspection" I have to wonder why Ram is delaying in shipping my 2014 and the orders of others on this list too.
My theory is that given the wild success of the 2013 model year that Ram wants to kick off the 2014 model year with a Big Bang and it will coincide with the start of the NFL season in early September!
To do so they have to ensure that all the dealers in the country have at least one 2014 truck in inventory. I know that in my area all of the large volume dealers already have a few 2014's in inventory. But, most of the smaller dealers have yet to see one.
To me it is apparent that the Ram marketing plan for 2014 includes stocking all dealers with at least one 2014 Ram truck before early September. And that they intend to do so at the expense of the relatively few of us who have already ordered a 2014 truck. We are not a priority to them. Dealer inventory is the priority!
