If I connect a 50 amp load to one leg and a 50 amp load to the other leg, what would you say is the total load capacity of the service?
Don't bother arguing with this guy, he is clueless. He is arguing with himself. No one is saying what he is saying.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

He fails to comprehend that 50 + 50 = 100.

If he was going to have ten 50-amp pedestals (sites) on a single run, wouldn't the line have to be able to carry at least 1,000 amps or 24kw at a bare minimum?  I could see the OP having the pedestals wired for 50 amp service but not have an adequate power source (feedline to the main disconnect) and an undersized line feeding the pedestals.

I think they would each have to have their own run back to the main panel and each one on a separate circuit.

It's legal to run , it's either 8 or 9, pedestals off of a 200 amp breaker. It's been too many years since I've done the calculations, and quoted the NEC code requirements to explain it all. It doesn't seem like it would work, but apparently it's good enough to meet code.
