Default Tug of war

I've seen in a dog training video that playing tug of war with puppies and dogs is a bad idea, because it teaches them to contest your will. I find this difficult to believe. I've had a lot of fun with my dogs playing like this, and haven't noticed any direct adverse effects. That being said, there might be other undesired behaviors that are linked to this, even though I don't know how. Opinions?
