When I brought it up before, I was told I was crazy and that I must be doing it wrong. LOL
My solution is to pack a bunch of rags around it before I crack the filter housing loose.
Well I don't have that issue of cracking the filter housing and oil gushes out! I can see how that would piss me off!
I would start with some Chevron oil sorbent pads for sure, and stick a couple under the filter housing.
The syringe is a nice idea too, but those rubber plungers will swell with the engine oil, and they are done. I've seen syringes that do not have the rubber plunger ends, just hard plastic, making them reusable. Think animal stuff for those.
In the end, I would be looking for new/used filter housing.

All the side mounted filters are like that.
I have twin F150's on my boat. All my newer Harleys have that side mounted front filter. Both the Yamaha and Honda quads I have are the same. Even the Cub Cadet zero turn is designed that way. You loosen the filter and get a mess. Time got eh S-100 and a hose at each oil change on these things.
