Owners are like everyone else they generally hire people they can work with and are comfortable with. The rich elite aren't any better or worse then the rest of us, they choose people they like and want around them.
The Rooney rule gets good people in the door and gives them a chance to work on their interview skills and otherwise interact with the owners. In the long run it does have an evening impact on the playing field. I don't see any problem with it. It's not as if they are being forced to hire people they don't want to work with they are simply opening the door to people who otherwise might not get an interview.
