Why all the tetrahedral Complexes are high spin Complexes ?

The magnitude of crystal field splitting energy (CFSE) in tetrahedral Complexes is quite small and it is always less than the pairing energy. Due to this reason pairing of electron is energetically unfavorable. Thus all the tetrahedral Complexes are high spin Complexes. In fact no tetrahedral Complex with low spin has been found to exist.
