Despite the fact that the decision was overturned on Tuesday, Allardyce is worried that tackling is dying out.
"We don't coach tackling anymore. That's rather sad," said Allardyce.
"We teach stay on your feet. We teach, pinch, nick, intercept. If you are going to ground try and be 100% sure you are going to win the ball.
"Now they are saying that even if the tackle is a perfectly good one, if it's ferocious in their eyes or is done with too much force, then that is still a booking or a sending-off. Well that's ridiculous."
