    A man points to the Cornella-El Prat stadium in Cornella Llobregat, Spain, Saturday, Aug. 20, 2011. The start of the Spanish league season will be delayed because Spanish league officials and player representatives failed to reach a last-minute deal Friday. Spanish players representing all 42 teams in the top two divisions backed the first work stoppage in 27 years after failing to sign a new collective bargaining agreement with improved salary guarantees. The conflict is about wages; players want guarantees from clubs owing up to euro50 million, about $72 million, in unpaid salaries to more than 200 players. Clubs involved in European competitions will continue playing. Villarreal faces a Champions League qualifying game next week, and Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are all playing Europa League matches. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)
