MLS Club insists it was justified in revoking reporter's credentials, but has offered only a vague explanation

Awful Announcing:

The other issue here is with the club’s claim that Pfahler has violated the MLS Notice of Credentials Use Conditions, which she had previously denied and continues to dispute. And the onus here should be on the team to point out specifically what they think she violated there. It made sense for Pfahler to not go into details beyond just the ban (and her dispute that she’d done anything wrong) initially in the hopes of resolving this relatively quietly, but FC Cincinnati escalated this substantially with a vague and non-specific statement on its website. And if it really thinks she did something wrong, it should say what that is so the world can judge, rather than providing a “trust us, she was wrong” statement.
