A question about a recipe: Grilled Brussels Sprouts

I'm not new to cooking, but am new to cooking with Brussels Sprouts. I'm not sure what is meant by "trim the cut ends back without interferring with the leaves." The way the leaves are tightly wrapped together, it seems impossible to not interfere with the leaves. Can you please elaborate a little further, please?

You just want to cut back the end/base until it's level with the healthy-looking leaves -- because usually the leaves near the base are a little ratty. Hope this is helpful.
