The difference in momentum along the pin dictates that rolling won't be determined by the values at either end but by some average (depending on other factors). This happens when coasting.

Under acceleration the result is less roll than with a parallel pin, and more roll under braking.

Antisquat has a contributing role here as well.
Holy crap, you made me look up at my browser settings. Thought somehow greek was selected as my default language. Kidding of course, great explanation.
