I dunno, Marc. Fifty games is one-third of the season, more or less. In the NFL's vaunted and regaled substance abuse schedule, his abuse would be punished by a four-game suspension, which is only one-quarter of the season. One could argue that this is actually a harsher punishment than he'd receive in leagues which are generally considered (I have come to believe that we're lied to on this now) to have more stringent testing and abuse penalties.
