Exactly. Some cards are written as if whoever came up with the text is a foreigner and not a native English speaker/writer. Naruto is by far the most ambiguous CCG when it comes to putting intention into cards, there are just too many which are written badly. The inconsistency on rulings and numerous exception from rules for some cards don't make it better either. And then there are contradicting rulings by different moderators in the only section where one can possibly search and find an explanation...
