I can never seem to make sense of why some guy with a sign adds time to each half.

    Soccer or football as the world knows it is a unique sport in that the time for each half continues running regardless of injury, substitution or a stoppage of play. Due to this fact, the referee (who also serves as the time keeper) has the flexibility and permission to add extra time to each half's 45 minutes to offset such stoppages that occurred in the half. FIFA officially knows this added time however it is often referred to as injury time.
