For just about every law, rule, or “mandate” (our new synonym for these it seems) you have in life, there will always be something or someone in a situation that makes you say, “Yeah, but what about this!” Allison Williams has been a sideline reporter for more than a decade of football seasons.
The latest sidelines that provide her port of call are those she patrols for ESPN. She will not be patrolling them this year. You see, at a time when Covid-19 vaccinations have now been mandated by employers and the federal government Allison Williams and her husband are trying to have a baby. And therefore, to me, she becomes a classic example of “Yeah, but what about this?” when it comes to a mandate. Her Tweet yesterday pretty much says it all.
This will be the first fall in the last 15 years I won’t be on the sidelines for College Football.— Allison Williams (@AllisonW_Sports) September 9, 2021

I hope everyone gets the vaccine. I’m a big believer it doing so. I also am a big believer in there are exceptions to every rule (or “mandate”). And clearly, Allison Williams is a big one. I wish her and her family NOTHING BUT THE BEST, and can’t wait to see her on the sidelines, doing what she loves, again soon. I also can’t wait to hear about a new baby that she goes home to.
