I don't know what you consider acceptable, but I keep way more than 50% of my 50D shots for focus. I throw them out for other reasons, but I have no issues with focus on my shots. Granted, not all are tack sharp, but it's probably from not using a monopod or other user error.

I have found about 50% to be about the max that I am getting in focus
(Being Generous) shooting football and Soccer. While better than the
30D and 40D it is nowhere near the keeper rate of my 1Dmk2N (but was
also nowhere near the price) I have tried adjusting the lenses
(70-200 F2.8 IS, 400 F5.6) center AF point only, sometimes FF
sometimes to the Rear, On stationary shots it's great but it's just
not fast enough for sports....
