It sounds like the griddle might be too heavily greased. You actually want the crepe to stick to the griddle at first, to help the batter spread. (Later, the dehydration and starch gelling causes the crepe to shrink slightly and release from the griddle.) If it's floating on oil from the very beginning, it'll just come along with the spreader.
