The problem is that the appeals usually don't occur within 10 games or whatever. So they kinda have to keep it this way.
Multiplying by 5 might be a little harsh, but I"m okay with multiplying by 2. You have to remember that teams have to play a man short of the 25-man roster for every guy who's suspended.
