The flood waters may be gone, but the debate over Victory Stadium lingers.
At issue now is whether the Roanoke River flood reduction project would have prevented last week's flooding.
City Councilman and Victory Stadium supporter Brian Wishneff says yes.

That's not what he said last week when flood waters began to rise.
