I believe you have to just loosen the cover to let most of the oil drain down. Only then can you remove the cover.

Just a shot in the dark, but have you tried first draining most of the oil from the crankcase before removing the oil filter?

If all else fails, diaper the area with lots of paper towels before starting the work.
