I agree. People are always going to ask for photos after an event. Some teams are going to hire photographers, some are not.
Sometimes it's the fact that they don't appreciate the value of your work time and effort.
Sometimes it's the fact that paintball is an EXPENSIVE SPORT and they can't afford to hire someone.
You don't have to be a dick to them for asking if someone took photos of a lower division. I spent some time on the 5 man field and the D3 (I think) field shooting. I was shooting two specific teams that hired me. What I would recommend to you (the OP) in the future is that you talk to the photographer. Ask who they shoot for, where you can find the photos, offer them a water from your paddocks... ask if they can get a shot of you because you're going to pull a flying V or something. I will always take a few photos for people that are cool and talk to me, have ProPaintball stickers on their hoppers/jerseys, wear Square One headbands, ect. Oh, and water! The water goes a long way!
Please post what team/division you were with and I'll keep an eye out when I go thru the photos again.
