1 - Because Rossi vetoed it. He stopped Stoner gong to Yamaha and then didn't have the balls to go to Ducati until Stoner left, which was a very wise decision.
2 - Rubbish. Stoner won multiple races every year he was in the top class even in the years he was I'll or injured. In fact the 'exceptional' year was 2011 where he 'only' won 3 races and got 9 podiums. Rossi put that achievement into perspective the very next year.
3 - Rubbish also. The main reasons he cited for retiring was that he had lost he passion for racing and wasn't happy with the direction of the sport.
