Al Davis never got over what might have been the biggest loss he experienced as Raiders owner.
Maybe he should have gone to P.F. Chang's.
That's apparently what his son Mark does after defeats as the team's current owner.
In explaining how he rebounded from the NFL's decision to move the Rams and Chargers to Los Angeles -- his preferred destination for the Raiders over Las Vegas -- Davis revealed his typical method for getting over losses.
"I have lost games before,” Davis told The Athletics' Vic Tafur. “That’s how I have learned to live my life -- you lose on Sunday, you’re pissed about it, I go to P.F. Chang’s on Monday, I have lunch and then I am on to the next week.
"We got our ass kicked in LA, and we went back to Oakland with our tails between our legs. And then [Former Coliseum Authority executive director Scott] McKibben backtracked and tripled our lease, and it was total disrespect. It was like, how are we going to work with these people?
“Vegas had been after us for years, but I told them I will only talk to you if Oakland and Los Angeles don’t happen. Losing the LA vote was probably the best thing that ever happened for us."

Davis seems to have no regrets with the way things turned out. Even still, the Raiders are bound to lose plenty of games during their tenure in Sin City.
Good thing for him, there currently are three P.F. Chang's within the city limits.
