I once wrote a blog on the UFC forums about an org like that. I called it G.A.S.P. the Geriatric Action Sports Partnership. It was in response to Kimbo fighting a fully gray Tank Abbott and big Tim getting KO'd by Mercer. At the time I though it was clever then I joined the UG and found out how lame I really was.
