...comprised of top players…

No.  It’s either “comprising” or “composed of.”  Comprise already means to be composed of.  The whole comprises it’s parts.  The parts compose the whole.

Sorry, everyone.  It’s a pet peeve of mine.  Not that my grammar or spelling is always perfect, either.

No worries, Bob.  I get on my friends and family about it, too.
