[Snort-users] ruleset priority

Why does the less specific rule continue to fire over the rule with a
specific destination IP address set? I have tried switching the order,
moving the rule to local.rules, and even tried adding a  /32 but
the more generic any any -> any 69 continues to fire.  The only way I
cat get the rule to fire is to change the more generic rule to
any any -> any 70.  It does fire then so I know the rule is valid.

alert udp any any -> 69 (msg:"TFTP 8888 GET"; content:"|00 01|";
offset:0; depth:2; classtype:not-suspicious; sid:1444; rev:2;)
alert udp any any -> any 69 (msg:"TFTP Z Get"; content:"|00 01|";
offset:0; depth:2; classtype:bad-unknown; sid:1444; rev:2;)

I read the README.
