I think that anyone claiming that tripods aren't necessary for photography doesn't do much photography.  Not only is a tripod necessary for long-exposure photography, it is necessary to hold the weight of the camera for extended periods.

I claim it and I make my living doing it. At least, I claim that the are only rarely necessary and only if you do certain things or use certain equipment. Not all photographers do.

US humanitarian photojournalist Karl Grobl (for example) is on record saying he does not even own a tripod and no one who has seen his work would claim he "doesn't do much photography".
