Yamaha offered Lorenzo and Rossi the same amount of money. Rossi didn't like it, too bad.
Rossi pitched a fit and demanded Yamaha choose between the two. They chose to pay both of them equally. Rossi still didn't like it so he had two choices, stay at Yamaha and look weak by backing out of his ultimatum, or go to Ducati.
Instead of Rossi making equal money as Jorge and possibly another WC (or two), he is now back at Yamaha, making far less than he would had he originally stayed, and has two years of the Rossi myth defunct.
