"Cal...talked himself out of the Factory Ducati ride"
That's a complete internet myth. The situation at Ducati had nothing to do with who said what and everything to do with Rossi's decision to leave the team. Had Rossi not left, then Cal would have joined the team as planned. VR's departure turned everything on its head and left the team with potentially no development continuity, hence the cancelling of the proposed line-up.
