I am having a very strange issue with my route in my global.asax.cs page.  

In the mapRoute below, if I use action = "Grid", everything works.  I can use either url below to navigate to the correct controller.  If I use action="Angular", both urls below go to the Angular Controller.  I have no idea why this is, but it took me a very long time to find.

These only work when the global file has action="Grid", otherwise they always go to Angular

    public class TemplateController : Controller
        // GET: /Template/

        public ActionResult Index()
            return View();

        public ActionResult Grid()
            return View("Grid");

        public ActionResult Angular()
            return View("Angular");

"Default", // Route name
"{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parameters
new { controller = "Template", action = "Grid", id = UrlParameter.Optional }// Parameter defaults
