You probably know Ed Coan and Louie Simmons better than I do. I've only met them a few times, very little conversation with either.
I've met Ed at a few multi-ply meets. He seemed to be having a great time. He has a keen eye and is very helpful to the lifters.
I remember sitting in the audience beside Louie at a Loiuisana meet once. He was very informative and helpful. He answered every question I had.
