Fans should have been ready for this. The owners got their salary cap and their "cost certainty" for at least the next four years. There is no such certainty for fans. Team payroll budgets have been cut in half in some cases, but fans should not have expected the cost of going to games to be reduced. That simply wasn't going to happen. The lockout was never about giving fans a break on ticket prices. The owners need your money. With their television revenue non-existent and many corporations probably not coming back, the owners can't afford to cut ticket prices by much.
