How do you ground roll while sideslipping? Perhaps on very wet grass?
A recipe for a groundloop or “gear up!”

I might be wrong but I think @Ibra is talking about landing slightly crossed controls so that you land on one wheel therefore reducing the chance of a bounce.

I just land sideslip all time to some extent, maintain it in flare & ground roll, that "drag config" give more directional control and keeps aircraft stuck on ground even under low angle of attack or rough surface without me having to fiddle with pitch inputs, the only issue is as @riverrock mentioned is side loads on the wheels...
The obvious answer for bounces as everybody mentioned is to be right dead on touchdown speed & point, the two conditions are hard to achieve but they work in steep slow approach, if the point you are touching has big hole on it or the speed is high you go around
Now you can still touchdown fine and while rolling the aircraft bounces at 20kts in hitting a bump in NIL wind days, what do you do? (really not much )
