That's what happens when you make the Sharingan this unbeatable weapon that pretty much outmatches all other character's HAX (and specifically has the ability to fuck with the "main character's" (and I use that term very loosely given the recent chapters) HAX).
What else could they possibly do to give Naruto a chance. If he could match otherwise it'd seem like bullshit, Kyuubi or no Kyuubi.
Kishimoto started writing himself into a fucking corner ages ago. God damn hack.
