Always follow the money, always.
.
So, does a third string kicker want a same piece of the action as the star running back? What about Title IX? Does the third string catcher on the girl's softball team deserve as big a piece of the pie as Johnny Football? If a college education is worth than $1 million in lifetime earnings versus no college education, doesn't the value of a "free ride" benefit the athlete over and above tuition and books regardless? Does this mean the lab assistants that help develop technology that universities patent and profit from will also be awarded their fair share of that pie? This can of worms is quite immense.
