People who look at chronicle sheets ahead of time are the same players who go peeking into their Christmas packages a month early. Play the darn scenario and then if you want to cherry pick, GM a game and place the new sheet on a new character. The sheet can also give hints on the play of the game and give the player knowledge ahead of time. Going into games blind is more more fun, exciting not knowing..... my personal opinion is that chronicle fishing is a lessor form of cheating.
With that said a GM might during the mustering phase give the players an idea of what kind of an adventure is coming. A player with both a bard and a barbarian is going to probably make a different choice with a title like Blackrose Matrimony vs. Assault on the Wound.
Also the new seasons do give hints on the factions being addressed.
