Why are non-rev sports more special than, say, intramurals or club sports?


No one is wringing their hands over the fact that club sports have never gotten funded very well at UVa, but talk about downgrading a varsity team to club status and suddenly we have a crisis on our hands.

Varsity athletes are in the spotlight, so we suddenly care more about them than dozens of other athletes and students in far worse circumstances. The spotlight gives them sympathy and lots of privileges far beyond what their 'due' is as far as I am concerned, and while I don't want to end non-rev sports I do not find them worthy of any more special treatment than they have already gotten for being the front-men for amateurism.
